Textile vs. Steel

If you are in Dalarna these coming weeks I can recommend an exhibition in Borlänge. It is a group of women who have woven in rose path technique with inspiration from a big hot rolling mill (varmvalsverk) that we have here in Borlänge. It will be interesting to see how the hard steel have been interpreted into soft yarns.

Väv 2014

Did you know there will be a big hand weaving fair in Umeå in September? The organization Svenska Vävrådet (the Swedish Weaving Council) arranges a fair every three years and it is always quite the event. Last time it was in Borås 2011 and it was three wonderful and hectic days of talking shop. Alice Lund Textilier will have a small stand at the fair this time as well, so I hope to see many of you there!



This is what our stand looked like in Borås 2011. (Before all of the thousands of weavers arrived!) We showed the sample weave from the tapestry Spirit Bear which was being woven at the studio. I wonder what we should bring this time?

This is what the loom looks like at the moment, beautiful grays...
