Presenting the first book in English to celebrate the little known woven art of Scandinavia. Full colour plates of rare examples of indigenous tapestry designs all of which display an astonishing variety of patterns- geometric, floral, and figurative- woven in glowing natural dyes. For this book, Sweden’s leading dealer in oriental rugs conducted a detailed study of these textiles and carried out extensive field research throughout the province of Skåne, the most prolific weaving area during the 18th and 19th centuries in Sweden.
