Fru Embla towels
50 x 70 cm
Background: Fru Embla is the counterpart to Herr Ask, and she, like him, is a strong character of her own. Seemingly random but with most conscious order. She dresses up and frames the porcelain and is ideal for setting the table together with Herr Ask, who is a pleasent contrast with its sharp pattern. Herr Ask and Fru Embla go from one color to another but they do so in their various ways.
The pattern has been in my mind for a long time and we have talked about Embla for quite a while. It may look simple, but there a extremely long hours behind the design of the pattern in order to achieve this random-look. Many samples have been drawn up before we were completely satisfied with the result. It is pleasure to work with Klässbols Linneväveri again and with materials and techniques that are able to hold such a high quality, which is rare in the Swedish Art Industry today. – Margot Barolo
