Amalia Ericsson, leather artist

From coats to cushions. Tales of what is important.

Having spent part of her childhood in the countryside and with a passion for recycling materials, industrial designer Amalia Ericsson has become enchanted by transforming and reworking old leather jackets into something new. Into something practical.
“It all starts with the nature of Gotland and – not least – the people. Their stories, their joys and sorrows inspire me. It’s important to be unconstrained in my mind when I create.”

“To tell the tale of what I believe in through my products.”

In the parish of Väte, in a little meadow next to the smallholding where she once played, built hideaways and grew up, she recharges her batteries.

“It’s fantastic to be able to be creative alongside everyone else involved in Made By Gotland. It has been founded by genuine people, who have the same picture of Gotland as I have.”
