Retro Christmas!

Printed textiles from the 20th century!

The tradition of decorating our homes for christmas is old.
The first printed christmas tablecloths appeared in the 1920's
In 1950's colour and designs became bolder
and textile artists were more engaged in the production.

Even tho many extraordinary designers have composed the most amazing tablecloths and hanging tapestrirs, printed christmas textiles have previously not received much attention.
The exhibition is a result of the cultural historians Anna Lundqvists and Marie Odenbring Widemarks extensive survey of printed christmas textiles.
The exhibition has been created in collabotation with the textile Museum in Borås, Västarvet and Östergötlands museum.

I love this kind of things and I guess its mostly cause I grew up with a grandmother that loved to Sew, knit and crochet different motifs on different canvases and paintings.
Even my mom has always been doing this and made many beautiful patterns and canvases. So it was fun to see her light up and we talked about what we recognized the most here at the museum.
Things we grow up with that was at home or at the mother and father parents houses 😉

I can't really place where I seen it before but probably also a family member who had it in their home.

Another thing that I loved was that looking up at the roof gave you just as much joy as looking at the textiles on the walls.
So here are some beautiful pics of hanging tapestries.

This was a favorite wiew, and the one with the house with many levels got my attention alot...
Its amazing how anyone can make such beautiful motives, and I know the amount of time and patience it takes from watching my Mother and grandmother.

I am doing well, thank you for asking!

My heritage is Scandinavian (My maternal great-grandfather emigrated from Western Norway), but I did not grow up in that culture. I have always loved the work of the Scandinavian Artisans though (not so much the cooking though).

These are beautiful art pieces that you shared with us on the last #PYPT Show.

My younger sister (who knows a great deal more about our Norwegian Heritage than I) makes Krumkake this time of year. As she is living in a camper, probably not this year.

It's really wonderful to see this beautiful collection! Very nice post! ❤👍❄☃️🎄

Thank you very much 😊👍 glad you liked it, it was lots of beautiful art work to se in textiles.
Have a wonderful evening. Much love 🤗🌹

I do now knit or sew myself but i still love displays like this so much wonderful colors and patterns, and it does remind me of my parents and uncles and aunties that used to have similar sorts of special table cloths and covers for this season

Thats so cool that you do Jay 😉👍
I can sew a little but not pattern or such, just sew things that need to be fixed... A Button, whole etc.
Knit... I only wish... Lol
It truly is fun to se displays with colourful textiles and patterns, and like you it reminds me of things I seen in my familys homes at different seasons.

Hope you are having a fantastic week my friend and much love 🤗🌹❤️
