Someday I'm going to have a Swedish summer house in the archipelago like a real Swede and fill it with Växbo Linen.
These table dressing sets include a tablecloth and four placemat-sized linens that can also be used as cloth napkins or even kitchen towels. Each piece has been meticulously assembled from the seconds scraps of Växbo's other linen products, creating a delicate and harmonious patchwork effect. They are then packaged in specially-made Växbo-linen covered boxes by Bookbinders.
The series is called Åkerlapp, which means a little scrap or patch of land in Swedish. A fitting description, as that is quite literally the effect when standing over the tablecloth. It's as if getting a birdseye view of the colorful geometric plots of farmland in Växbo's own home of Hälsingland, Sweden, where the linens are made.
The range was initiated and designed by Stockholm-based Note Design Studio, and was launched today. The designs will be available in Växbo showrooms and at its factory, sold individually and in sets, later this Spring.
