WEAVOLUTION!

It is a weavolution happening! This summer the art gallery MEKEN is showing contemporary woven textile art in collaboration with Alice Lund Textilier. There are many interesting textile artist and ateliers in the exhibition; Helena Hernmarck, Annika Ekdahl, Barbro Lomakka, Kazuyo Nomura, My Draiby, Maria Ray Johansson, Rosengångsvävarna, Handarbetets Vänner, Wålstedts and of course Alice Lund Textilier. There will also be an opportunity to try weaving every Wednesday when Riksföreningen för handvävning is showing how a loom works. I am very much looking forward to this exhibition. Hopefully we can show that hand weaving and textile art is very much an art form to be reckoned with today and in the future.

Thank you Fornby!

Today I got an unexpected call from Kicki and Kajsa, teacher's at Fornby Folkhögskola. Well it is not unexpected that Kicki would call, the school has a lot of courses in weaving and sewing and is almost a neighbor to Alice Lund Textilier. But the reason was a happy surprise. They had found an old rug and a tapestry from Alice Lund that belonged to the school and had now almost been forgotten. So they thought it'd be better if I would adopt them so they would have a better home. I was of course more than happy to say yes to that! The very beginning of Alice Lund Textilier's history actually starts at Fornby school. Alice Lund's sister in law Karin Lund was a weaving teacher there in the 1920's and 1930's. She started her own company designing and selling textiles in the early 1930's and in 1934 Alice Lund joined her in her venture. That was the starting point of what is still our atelier today! So in that regard I was extra joyful that these textiles has now come back to their beginnings.

The rug is a the classic rosepath rug "Hästtäcket" and the tapestry is probably from the mid 1970's. I found the original design in our archives which names it "Ackord". It also looks very much in color like the tapestry from 1969 that I bought just a couple of months ago.

So I can not thank Kicki, Kajsa and Fornby enough for giving these textiles a new home!

Exhibition: HV Textile Graduation Exhibition

After our exhibition at HV Gallery, they opened the textile student's graduation exhibition. The last couple of years they have showed their work at Almgrens Sidenväveri. But since the gallery has reopened they now are showing it in-house in stead. As always the student's show great craftsmanship as well as artistic ambition. Here are some of my favorites;

Oxelösunds skärgård

This week a rug from Alice Lund Textilier was sold at Bukowskis Contemporary auction. It was a knotted pile rug designed by Dagmar Lodén in 1969 called "Oxelösunds skärgård" (Oxelösunds archipelago). A beautiful rug in good condition about 2m x 3m. I hadn't seen this design before so it was exciting to go visit it at the auction house. And as always when something is sold I wonder where the rug's new home will be...

In the latest number of Vävmagasinet (the Scandinavian Weaving Magazine) there is a four page article about Alice Lund Textilier and our rugs. We are so happy to show all of Vävmagasinet's readers what we do in our looms! I hope most of you have a subscription already (it comes in both Swedish and English) but if you don't here is the English version of the article.
