I promised to tell you more about my beautiful discovery during our trip to Avignon, about a fine lavender shop where I learned things I never heard before and fell in love with this plant.
Hi! I'm Vita, the designer and maker behind vitavihandmade. I grew up in the north of Russia, lived in sunny Italy for 3 years but moved back to the north, to the lovely city of Helsinki, Finland. I've always been fascinated by Nordic countries, their wild nature, minimalist designs and simple lifestyle. I started to create botanical crochet jewelry and home décor in 2015, getting everyday inspiration from Finnish landscapes, forests and plants. I use only natural cotton and do everything by hand, trying to make my pieces simple but unique. Thank you for stopping by!
To escape from a cold and gray Finnish April towards a sunny and colorful French one was vitally important. I was hunger to see greens and blooms and to feel the sun on my skin. I felt absolutely happy just from the moment we got on the train from Paris to Avignon.
