Swedish textile art has ancient traditions, and the magnificent and colorful art weaves of Scania, the southern-most province of Sweden are especially precious. Jakob Kulle spent 20 years studying Scania's art weaves and collecting patterns. In Swedish Patterns for Art Weaves and Embroidery, published in 1892, Kulle describes eight traditional weaves: rosengang (rosepath), flamskvavnad (tapestry), rolakan (Interlocking tapestry), krabbasnar, munkabalte, upphamta and dukagang (extra-weft patterning) and Flossa (knotted pile). This book contains 36 color charts with 200 patterns for weaving and embroidery. This edition is a facsimile print of the original text and charts, with a modern English translation of the text, and it is a very special resource full of traditional inspiration for modern crafters!
