Did you know that Hygge is so last year? This year the key word for everyday happiness is Lagom! Today´s piece was almost left behind when we were scouting for old original textiles but we are glad we took it on board: it was soooo Lagom! It turned out to very likely be a perfectly preserved example of "Allmoge" style, estimated time last part of 1800.
Entirely handwoven and sewn in the finest way, this table cloth is made of linen. One can only appreciate fully the hours of work and quality when this piece is held in one´s hand. To describe the level nowadays one can only buy similar quality in Sweden at Axlings Linne, plus in this case, the fabric is entirely hand made.
