Lina Zedig

Lina Zedig is a Swedish fiber artist and textile designer. Her work has its origin in swedish fiber art and textile craft traditions and is heavily influenced by the folk art of Japan and India – places to which she has traveled extensively and lived throughout the years.

An early interest in sewing and embroidery inspired Zedig to study weaving. Her style bridges the modern, vernacular, and organic.

The natural world is central to her practice both in the development of natural dyes as well as in the expression of rytmic patterns found in the natural world. But also practicing craft as an opposition to the consequences the textile industry has on nature.

Her exploration of natural dyes and sustainable practices eventually led to the creation of Oyyo, an independent design and textile studio.

Currently lives and works between Stockholm, Athens and India.
