  • Our Stromstad Organic Cotton Tea Towel is made in Sweden by Ekelund Weavers. These collections of textiles are some of the finest woven table and kitchen linens we've found and reflect the taste and style of the Scandinavian good life. Established 1692, the Ekelunds have been purveyors to The Royal Court of Sweden for over a century. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than to offer these beautiful results of this traditional craft for you to use, cherish or share as you see fit. All articles are woven at the old family mill with natural materials that have been cultivated, harvested and selected with respect for the environment and recognized by the Swedish society for nature conservation. In addition, Ekelund Weavers is certified by GOTS (The Global Organic Textile Standard), the world's leading processing standard for organic textiles.

    Tradition, like love, is passed on from generation to generation and founder Marta Ingemarsdotter's legacy lives on in these collections. Each and every woven article—from the oldest classic patterns to the newest and most colorful—is made in accordance with our family traditions, to be enjoyed in accordance with yours.
    Nils-Erik NilssonSince 1972, Halmstad artist Nils-Erik Nilsson devoted himself to classical oil and watercolor painting. The motifs have often been taken from the Halland landscape and especially from the coast. From 2003 onwards, Nils-Erik was hired by an art publisher to paint Christmas card motifs from different cities and towns in Sweden, which has led to about 300 different Christmas cards being created with motifs from all over the country. This interest has now become a great passion and painting is now completely dominated by capturing the distinctiveness and image of the Swedish cities. In the city motifs, Nils-Erik paints a well-known and representative view of each city. The motifs are a mixture of imagination, reality, humor and many details—the most common comment from viewers is "you get happy". The city motifs are an end in themselves, but the images are used for postcards, magnets, badges, canvas paintings, etc. and sometimes not at all. In 2018, a project was started in collaboration with Ekelund's weaving mill in Horred to craft a collection of city towels based on Nils-Erik’s city motif.
