Designer: Ingegerd Hyltén-Cavallius
Name: Blommor och Blader 8527 (Sunflowers 8527)
Original colour: Soft brown with orange, yellow, green, brown and pink linen threads.
Sunflowers 8527 was designed by Ingegerd Hyltén-Cavallius in 1964.
Ingegerd started young at Nordiska of Gothenburg, and worked her whole life as a professional visual artist, furthering her education in textiles, graphics, watercolour and enamel.
Sunflowers 8527 is the first design by Ingegerd that we republish from the Nordiska archive.
With the reprinting on contemporary linen, we have chosen a fabric larger than the original. In the 60's, Sunflowers was a kit for a very small cushion, only 26 x 48 cm. In the contemporary kit, we have kept the print the same size as the original, you will receive one hand printed sheet of beautiful linen fabric,
circa 50 x 60 cm long.
We have found a very rare, complete sheet of the original stitch chart, and a full size copy of this chart will be included with your kit.
