During this spring, we had the pleasure of having the student Sophie Jungkvist from the The Swedish School of Textiles in Borås with us during her internship. To get close to nature and to have total peace of mind she like some other of our prominent designers and employees stayed at the linen weaving’s cabin Åsen, which is located on the shores of the Glafsfjorden. Sophie, who grew up in Stockholm, has also trained at HV-Textil, and you immediately notice that she thinks outside the box. She is testing several materials combinations with linen to develop new products and new uses.
And when Sophie presented what she worked with us, we got shocked. Three-dimensional structure, for example a pleat that can be pulled in and out, products that change appearance and function depending on the position you use it.
– I have used different woven folds, elastic yarns and sometimes woven several layers in double weave to create complex 3D structures. But even a simpler structure with floatations can create a fabric in two layers that are partly interwoven and can be pulled apart. Everything that is possible to weave in a jacquard fabric, and with linen in warp and weft, where its stiffness works so well to create volume. Yan can change light input, visible colors and transparency, the fabric would fit well as a curtain or a room divider, and if you give it a three-dimensional structure, it also has good sound-absorbing abilities. The same room could be changed as desired depending on how you adjust the fabric says Sophie.
The textiles can be viewed in Klässbol in smaller parts.
