Setsuné designers story
Crafting the apronDesigning the collectionIntroducing the ÅTERSTÄLLA collection
The collection is made entirely from salvaged IKEA textiles that would otherwise have become waste. Instead, Setsuné has crafted this material into a beautiful collection of products that support cooking and eating. When Indigenous people hunt an animal, no part of that animal is wasted - out of respect for the animal, the natural world, and humanity. This collection was created to capture that traditional philosophy, preventing valuable materials from being wasted and sustaining Indigenous culture. Each of the items in the collection is a hand-made, unique piece for your life at home.

In Swedish, ÅTERSTÄLLA means to restore, heal, or redecorate, which relates to the “upcycling” approach of using salvaged textiles from IKEA stores to produce this collection. Setsuné (set-soon-ay) means grandmother in the Dene language, signifying intergenerational connection and oral history.
