Crocheted toasts, ramen, and turkey dinners are prepared with fibres by Maria Skog
Maria Skog guarantees her orange slices, turkey, and eggs won’t spoil. She crochets fibre-based creations with preservation in mind, ensuring that every berry and bagel stays as fresh as the day they were made.
Based in Närpes, Finland, Skog began crafting the fare for her two daughters about 12 years ago when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The practice was meditative and calming. “If I wouldn’t survive, I wanted the girls to have living memories of me, and I thought that they would remember us playing together with the food I crocheted myself,” she says.
