On Sunday, May the 17th, 2015 just before the wedding of Prince Carl Philip and Miss Sofia Hellqvist at the Royal Palace, Governor Kenneth Johansson handed over the gifts from Värmland.

The country’s gift for the wedding couple consists of three parts. The first part being a commitment to protect nature in the soon formed nature reserve, Byamossarna in Arvika municipality. Through the support of the business community in Värmland, the governor also handed over a work of art by Karlstad artist Karolina Nolin and custom-designed linen products from Klässbols Linneväveri.

In the products, which are part of Klässbols Linneväveri’s new collection “Ack Wermeland”, the designer Margot Barolo has received inspiration from the thermal-like nature, especially the nature of the Byamossarna.

– The table cloth has got its pattern with the help of Värmlandsvisan, which describes a love for nature. The letters and words form a pattern of stripes flowing over the tablecloth. The pattern of the napkin reflects the mosses and other vegetation that are typical of the Byamossarna nature reserve. The motif is abstract and the sizes are distorted. In addition, the strips are inspired by the map’s name for wetlands and marshes, says designer Margot Barolo.

The set consists of a tablecloth and twelve unique napkins in the cave with the wedding couple’s common monogram inväft. The whole gift is wrapped in a specially made linnen bag, even this with the wedding couple’s monogram inväft.
