The Ficedula Parva collection is inspired by the colour palette of the Red-breasted Flycatcher. It is made of organic cotton, organic linen and recycled yarn. The textile print is handmade by the designer. By choosing materials that are produced in a way that is gentle to nature, by using high quality materials that last longer, and by creating classic designs that can be used for more than one season, the Ficedula Parva collection has its place in HEKNEs greater design concept where every collection carries the colours of one selected bird.

Basic to a streamline of leopard shape, mix-matched Art Deco and modern artistic form of expression, models on clay, a sculpture which is following woman's wonderful body line. In the basis of the tanning technique, steam from an iron is used on wet leather for over a hundred hours to make the leather follow the sculpture. Then it keeps the silhouette of the leather to be stable, even without the sculpture.
