Külli writes about her inspiration source: "Knitting is my passion. It is of utmost importance for me that Estonian authentic mitten motifs will live on and will stay in use both for knitters and consumers.  Estonian stranded colorwork mittens, it is a fascinating world full of secrets and protective power. I am honoured to know a bit about it and gladly preserve it for future generations. I am inspired by nature, colors playing together in harmony. Ancient archaic motifs and symbols, especially Seto patterns influence my creations a lot."
