Just like in olden days, you can now hear the thumping of the looms in Växbo. Växbo Lin aims to keep the old traditions alive, and much of our products have been inspired by the knowledge woven into Hälsingland’s considerable linen treasure chest. After visiting many local farms and museums in the region, textile artist Ingela Berntsson has brought forth our collection. She wanted to create the feeling that the patterns and the cloth itself have their roots in genuine folk culture, and so they do. Rustic and simple, but also with exclusive elegance in colour and pattern.
Our tablecloths are all woven of 100 % linen. Thanks to their high quality and timeless design, they are suitable for both everyday and festive use. We hope you will use your linen tablecloths as often as possible, as linen just becomes more and more beautiful the more frequently it’s being used. And not only you should be able to enjoy them but also your children and, eventually, your grandchil- dren! All our tablecloths are woven in 160 cm width and some of them are also available in 50 and 35 cm width. For more detailed information, please see the descriptions for the different patterns.
Runners & Table mats
A runner can serve many purposes. It’s magnificent in its simplicity for daily use, arranged cross-wise on your breakfast, lunch or dinner table, or why not as a highlight on your chest of drawers or coffee table. It can also be the finishing touch on a festive dinner table, placed on top of one of our large tablecloths, for a very special effect.
What a difference such a small item can make to the overall picture! A linen napkin gives a silver lining to everyday life and the finishing touch to a festive dinner table. A napkin can match the colours of your tablecloth, glassware or china, thus creating a classic, sober impression. It can also be used as a contrasting accent for a more vibrant, exciting effect. This is why our specially designed linen napkins come in the same range of colours as our other products but also in contrasting colours.
Most of our linen textiles can be purchased as yardage. In this way you can get the size tablecloth, runner or curtain that fits your needs. The fabric is great for sewing clothes, or even for upholstering. Another use is as office partition material or for draperies in public spaces.
Linen is the perfect bath towel material, good at absorbing and quick to dry. What’s more, it’s thin and takes very little space. These properties make it perfect whether you’re at home, at the beach, at the bath house or on a trip. In the sauna, linen feels cool to the touch, and its design adds style wherever you choose to use it.
Linen absorbs moisture better than any other natural fibre. Our linen towels can be used almost anywhere: in the kitchen, bathroom, sauna, cottage etc. Can you imagine a greater everyday luxury than drying your face and hands with a linen towel? Linen gives you a superb feeling on your skin. If your skin is warm, linen feels cool, and if your skin is cold, linen will warm it. In the kitchen, our linen towels are perfect for drying glasses and china, as hand towels and as a chef’s towel tucked into your apron string.
Linen is a fantastic material that can be used almost anywhere – your imagination is the limit! One of our slogans at Växbo Lin is that we are creators of new concepts and ideas, a “philosophy” that has resulted in our wide range of products. Our aim is to continuously further develop existing products while exploring new products and fields of application.
