Ellinor Nilsen is a Swedish fashion designer who works playfully with sustainability in focus. These upcycling projects started in 2021 when she started to work with the second hand business Björkå frihet. The textiles she uses can’t be sold second hand due to defects, but these defects are cut away in the process of creating bathrobes. Most of the production has been made by the micro factory Aindustri in Gothenburg, Sweden.
