Creatively, Aya like using abstract subject matter and imagery because she want every viewer to bring their own unique background and ideas to viewing the work. She really want people to have an individual experience. Technically, this textile creates harmony through the color and texture of yarns. Jaquared weaving is an old technique that allows the combination of warp and weft to result in new colors. Jaquared also creates tiny, three-dimensional structures on the surface of the weave to give the work a different texture as you view it from different angles.

The Ficedula Parva collection is inspired by the colour palette of the Red-breasted Flycatcher. It is made of organic cotton, organic linen and recycled yarn. The textile print is handmade by the designer. By choosing materials that are produced in a way that is gentle to nature, by using high quality materials that last longer, and by creating classic designs that can be used for more than one season, the Ficedula Parva collection has its place in HEKNEs greater design concept where every collection carries the colours of one selected bird.

In the basis of the tanning technique, steam from an iron is used on wet leather for over a hundred hours to make the leather follow the sculpture. Then it keeps the silhouette of the leather to be stable, even without the sculpture.
