Some years ago it was hard to ”make some noise” with textile in Sweden. During my Art University years we were a tiny group who worked alone. I am so happy that has changed now! It’s the comeback of textile – and ”with a vengeance” :-) I love it!
Velvet boxing-glovers with traditional Swedish folklore embroidery. The stitch is from the province of Blekinge called Blekingestitch (Blekingesöm).

Way to let ‘em have it, Inger. Those misguided estimations of craft are so dreary!
