More information

Scania weave, (Swe: Flamskvävnad) is an old Swedish weaving tradition, that has it’s origins in the French Gobelin weaving technique. The technique spread out from the Royal castles of Sweden to the Scanian countryside in the end of 18th century. The small textile panels were mostly made for wedding ceremonies, when extensive dowries were created for the bride-to-be, ensuring a continuity of the family traditions from generation to generation.

The Scania weave textiles in our collection come from different areas in Southern Sweden. They are all unique pieces of art, all in vibrant colors, many of them over 100 years old. The textiles have been carefully reworked into cushions, using high quality wools and velvets to accompany the delicate textiles.
