Dick Johansson, marketing manager and co-owner of Klässbols Linneväveri has been awarded a Royal medal by the king. It announced the court on the National Day. Now the medal has been handed out at Drottningholm Castle and is in safe custody on the linen weave in Klässbol.
– It is a medal to the company and not just to me says Dick. This is also a fine rating that what we do is appreciated and puts the impression says Dick.
Those who know Dick know that it is hard work and a lot of heart behind the award. Nothing comes for free. The family company, which is the royal court supplier since the 1970s and celebrates 100 in 2020, can testify to both success and adversity. But the most important key has always been the desire to carry the weaving tradition further. It has in turn created jobs and it is extra fun to contribute Dick says.
Klässbols Linneväveri has for a long time been fortunate to be able to manufacture products that attract attention. Some examples of these works are the production of linen duvets, tablets and napkins for the Nobel party, the Foreign Ministry, the King’s tabelcloth (which took five years to weave) and now most recently furnishings for the National Museum (Nationalmuseum). Collaboration with well-known designers and products that are shown in interior design programs on TV, such as “Summer with Ernst” has also been part of the success.
Dick Johansson gets the royal medal of eighth size with the band of Seraphim order. The motivation reads: “For meritorious efforts as a cultural carrier in Swedish business”
We would also like to congratulate Lena Sewall (author, food writer and warming companion from Värmland), who also received a medal with the statement “For significant contributions as an author.
