Signe Emdal

Textile artist

I call myself a channel, or a translator, making interpretations of historical material. I love turning something flat into textiles. I’m known as the girl with the machine, but I’m also a swimmer and a skier, a lover of oceans and mountains. I spend a lot of time dreaming, meditating and enjoying nature. To keep a good silence inside is important, that way you get a healthy mind and can be a inspiration for other people.

Yours truly

Best shopping destinations in the city. Budget shopping is not an option in Copenhagen - but don't worry, you get what you pay for. Royal Copenhagen is one of the most popular venues for artsy authentic gifts, and there are many souvenir stores on Stroget as well. Nørrebro features more in terms of fashion, while shopping around Radhus Pladsen is convenient if you don't have much time in town.
