Winning bid on Lauritz :)
There was a lot of people working in the studio today. Mostly with Julform, the market. But me and Klara did a lot of packing too (thank you for all orders!). Gosh the Paumes books sold out quickly. But happily they will be back in stock again next week. Please send a mail if you would like to reserve a specific one.
As you might remember we started a Christmas market last year called Julform. The market was a great success and will of course be back this year as well. This weekend in fact. Even if I’m not “in charge of it” this time I will be involved as one of the exhibitors. If you are in Gothenburg friday–sunday you really should stop by Röhsska and visit the market.
JULFORM 2011, Wernstedthallen, Röhsska museet:
9 december 16–19
10 december 11–17
11 december 11–17
The market will be filled with high quality products made by established craftsmen and designers. Like these Christmas sprawling kitchen towels made by Cecilia or the velvet pillow below, made by the same.
Is it not amazing Cecilia‘s pillow (remember the drawing?) In black velvet. I’m drawling! As said Cecilia is a pattern queen. Look here. Leave a comment at Cecilia’s blog if you’re interested in buying one.
Klara‘s gorgeous mittens will be sold at the market as well. You hear, you just can’t miss this. Kom!
Another pattern queen, Katy Goutefangea.
Joseph Frank fabric “Bows”. 6 ready-made curtains / panels.
Little Red Stuga have been busy, carpet and Mountain poufs Fuji, Kilimanjaro & Mount Everest for Lekolar.
My friend Åsa Dahlbäck makes the loveliest patterns. A while ago I had the honor to photograph her Master’s degree project. Blogged here and here. Now several of her patterns are availble as wallpapers, at Photowall. Look here and here!

Do you remember “Makkara Piruetti”, one of our most beloved books in the book shelf, blogged here. The illustrator, Matti Pikkujämsä has such has such a good sense for details and whole. I called for his web page, I still don’t think he have one but I did get a message about his work for Kauniste. Handprinted textiles in Finland. Great looking kitchen towels by Matti and Leena Kisonen, see more work by Leena here. These are sketches by Matti and paper cuttings by Leena, the mushroom towel by Matti. See the other towels here.
Something happens when you blow up textile/weave details like this. Beautiful, isin´t it.
There is a lot of huck weaving on internet, here for example.
