Dermond Peterson's New Sweetheart- Älskling

Alskling Behind the Scenes Big Bag Collection Kitchen Towels Natural Linen New Product Skandia Sweden Weaving

One of Susan's latest designs, Älskling, or Swedish for "Sweetheart" is an homage to traditional Swedish Huck weaving.

Swedish Huck Weaving Example

Huck weaving combines embroidery, weaving and darning and dates back to the 1600's. Each of the colored threads stays on top of the fabric keeping the back neat.

Huck Weaving Design

 Älskling plays with the ubiquitous Scandianavian heart shape and the dynamic warp and weft of weaving practices.

The design process for Älskling was lengthy- each aspect of the heart, the repeat, the positive and negative space, and the shape break was tested multiple times by Susan in order to reach the right level of sophistication and slight whimsy.
