Tulip 7409 - Designed in 1962 by Ingrid Bjernefors-Dahlman for Nordiska
Kit contains 1960's Nordiska print on contemporary linen, measuring approx 50 x 50cm, 7 x 14m skiens of linen threads. Two printed cards are included: one card with a photograph of the original artwork, an English translation of stitches used, and a brief history of its origins. The other card describes the 24 common stitches used by Nordiska in their kits.
Designed in 1962 by Ingrid Bjernefors-Dahlman for Nordiska, a Swedish embroidery company which was founded in 1879.
Nordiska flourished for almost a century, then left behind it's complete archive in an old linen factory storeroom, saved and found only recently.
So far, the pattern chart for this embroidery has not been found, nor do we have the original textile. Therefore these kits invite you to improvise with colours and stitches.
