Sutip Austad has been interested in plants ever since her childhood years in Thailand but it was her anger towards the Swedish employment office that made her start cultivating professionally. "I can get jealous of plants because they are all beautiful in their own way, and I feel comfortable with cultivation because I'm a loner who doesn't need affirmation. I do not complain, I see things as a lesson and I save positive energy for myself." Nowadays she runs a splendid Asian garden situated on the Swedish west coast and she sells to luxurious restaurants all across Scandinavia. "I only grow things you can eat, even if I don't eat it myself. Cultivation brings me harmony, it's a good thing for those who are crazy like me, who can fall in love with simple stuff." Sutip and her aromatic plants is the inspirationen for the pattern Oas.
