About the name
The Birch is one of my favourite trees, if not my absolute favourite. These beautiful trees are very common in Northern Europe, where I live now, and populate a place special to me near my family’s cabin. They represent the natural part of life. The name Birch is there to remind me that nature cannot be separated from the rest, it rules everything no matter how hard we try to control it. It also serves as a reminder to choose materials that are possibly found in nature, which underwent as little processing as possible. On the other side, the Bike. Beside being one of my favourite objects, the bike represents the human-made side of life. The gears which beautifully work together to move forward. The bike symbol of slow movement, of mindfulness and of a more ecological approach to life.
