picture me


My name is Gunna Ydri, I am a Danish textile designer who live and work in North London. I am a Chelsea College of Art & Design and a Royal College of Art graduate specialising in printed textiles and illustration.
I have always been inspired by the constant change of the city which contrasts with my rural upbringing in Denmark where I spent most of my childhood. I have a natural passion for Nordic folklore designs and ethnic patterns, which constantly inspires and infuses my work.
I am working as a freelancer and have sold textiles designs to most of the major fashion and furnishing companies in Europe, America and Japan over the years.
I live with my Husband in North London, where we are bringing our 3 children up. I feel it is very important to keep them attached to nature and to encourage their creativity and their natural curiosity.
Over the past few years I have been developing a range of frames, brooches, screen prints and other accessories.
Enjoy everyday
