Designed by Birgitta Salenius for Nordiska  (N.I.A.B) of Gothenburg, Sweden. 
1960’s design on contemporary linen. 

Circle Chain Runner (Löpare) 5980 is from our second selection of prints.

With the linen print, you will receive linen threads in seven colours, and two cards: one of the cards with a picture of the artwork that was printed for this kit,
an English translation of stitches used, and a brief history of its origins. The other card describes the 24 common stitches used by Nordiska in their designs.
On the Circle Chain Runner 5980 card you can see which stitches were used where. We have not followed the colour scheme on the original instructions, there were at least three different colour versions published in the 60's and what you can find today is different from before. 

The threads that are wrapped with a label Linblomman or Nordiska are all vintage, Swedish 1960’s, Klippan is from the 1990's, and if there is an unlabelled hank of threads, then it is contemporary linen dyed in Sweden. In the photos here, you can see which threads that are included. 

The last picture shows the positioning of the print on the 37 cm x 83 cm fabric.  All pieces are hand cut and may vary slightly in size. The print is self is centered and measures 15 cm x 50 cm, exactly as the original 1960's size. 
The runner was printed on a smaller size fabric in the past, 
the larger linen piece here allows for more ideas, for example a cushion. 
As backing (if you like to make a cushion) it's nice to use for example Donegal tweed, or any vintage fabric.

If you like to wash the linen, remember that it shrinks 4-5%, and it's best to soak before laundry to save the flax fibres from unnecessary wear. The screenprint itself is wash proof.
