1960’s Nordiska print on contemporary linen.
Linen threads and two printed cards included: one card with a photograph of the original artwork, 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 kits. This embroidery kit involves a little bit of improvising, as we don’t have the exact instructions for it.
The threads that are wrapped with a label are all vintage, Swedish 1960’s, and the hank is contemporary linen dyed in Sweden.
The linen fabric is 85 cm wide, and 38 cm tall, all hand cut so it can vary slightly. The print itself is centered and measures 51 cm wide and 14 cm tall, exactly as the original.
Linen shrinks 4-5%, soak before laundry and always avoid tumble drying for linen fibres. The print is wash proof.
The last picture shows the positioning of the print on the 50x50cm fabric. For backing (if you like to make a cushion) it's nice to use for example Donegal tweed, or any vintage fabric.
