Mother Earth – textile minerals and minuscule details
The minerals and rocks that lie in layers under the Earth’s surface inspired this collection of wovens, made of organic cotton/linen, with neat embroidered stitches, like sparkles on a lake. We visited the lake next to beautiful Ullungsfors in the heart of Hälsingland, where flax was once widely grown. Its cultivation can be traced back centuries. Increased production and exports of linen and damask tablecloths to Europe in the 17th century brought considerable wealth to the area. It created the fortunes of the large farms.
