VÄV2014

What a wonderful week in Umeå! Thousends of weavers and a lot of positive energy. I talked so much that I forgot to take pictures but here is where we spent most of our time, at Alice Lund Textilier's booth. We brought a Helena Hernmarck tapestry "Tulip Pair" that got a lot of attention. Many weavers had their noses in the weave to analyze the technique and yarns...  A big thank you to Ebba, Inger and Evy who helped spread the word about Alice Lund Textilier to people from all over the world.

Tulips in Umeå

Welcome to visit Alice Lund Textilier's booth at Väv2014 in Umeå next week! We will, amongst other things, bring a small tapestry "Two Tulips" by Helena Hernmarck. So if you are interested in the Hernmarck-technique or want to know more about our work at Alice Lund Textilier, we will be there throughout the whole weaving fair. I am sure it will be wonderful days filled with hand-weaving, yarns and textile art.

Here are two other beautiful tulip tapestries by Helena Hernmarck, woven at Alice Lund Textilier in 2004.

Gold, gold, gold

It isn't just sketches, photographs and samples that has survived over the years at the studio. We also have a lot of materials and tools left - some we still use today. Here are some samples of our selection of gold threads and ribbons. Often used in the production of church textiles.
