Polina Laamanen

Short bio

Polina Laamanen (b.1989) is an embroidery and textile artist. In 2016 after changing big city life to the countryside she found her unique way of embroidering birds which began a whole career as a self-employed artist. The most popular hand-embroidered jewellery from that time was the hen brooch – it was created in many different colour combinations and in more than 200 copies. In 2022 she was featured in the Vogue Scandinavia magazine. In 2020 she wrote a book about 3D embroidery that was published by EKSMO.
