Textile artist, designer
Nanna is a professional textile artisan, designer and weaver. Over four decades she has produced a countless number of design rugs and a wide variety of interior decoration and clothing textiles.
Utilizing her skills as a visual artist, she has produced extraordinary applique pictures, which appear in both private and public collections.
Numerous works fill Nanna’s substantial portfolio. She has done graphic design and applied her skills to creating unique templates for gardens and interiors.
Her love of horses inspired her to create an unmatched style of weaving: horsehair ribbons. For two decades, the horsehair ribbons have been integrated with a complementary collection of jewellery, unparalleled in craftsmanship and quality. Combining precious metals and woven horsehair is a stunning innovation, something that nobody had done before.
This unique nannasalmi™ collection combines old world craftsmanship with contemporary modern design. The ribbons are miniature fabrics woven with horsehair and are combined with precious metals and stones. Each piece of the collection is completely handmade in Finland with the hair of your horse or with stock hair.
Designs in Nanna’s jewellery are perfected with the assistance of her skilled goldsmith, assuring you of their uniqueness, functionality, and most of all, beauty.
Each piece in the collection is completely hand made in Finland, and ribbons are woven from horsehair strands provided from your horse, or from stock hair.
The nannasalmi collection is loved by both professional and hobby riders worldwide.
Nanna Salmi has offered horsehair jewellery under the trademark Tmi nannasalmi™
since the year 2000.
