Stitches

DANISH HANDICRAFT TRADITION

 

Cross stitch is a big part of the Danish handicraft tradition, and something closely tied to family. Most of us learned from our unbelievably patient grandmothers - or our even more patient home craft teachers who got the questionable joy of teaching 30 kids at a time. But they did. And they made sure we followed the right patterns and tucked the thread neatly on the backside.

TRADITIONAL REFERENCE OF PAST TIMES

The Stitches collection is decorated through transfer print, a technique generally associated with paper decoration, which allows a detailed application of a broad range of patterns and colours to the designs. The clean lines and shapes of the collection have a modern expression, while the recognisable cross-stitching patterns flirt with a traditional reference of past times.
