INFO

We were inspired to create Olle’s Ski Trip by the storybook worlds depicted by Swedish author Elsa Beskow in 20th century.

The resulting suite of imaginative, playful, and humorous upholstery fabrics speak to children and adults alike.

Just like children’s tales, these textiles turn the page to an unexpected dimension of the world we know. When we read of woods teeming with elves, trolls, and little people, we look about ourselves with newly curious eyes. Our cloth gives furnishings a highly tactile surface that challenges the idea of “upholstery”–and makes us more curious and attentive to our surroundings.

The “Olle’s Ski Trip” collection was created with an eye to libraries and public, cultural settings where the senses are wide open.
