Trädgårdsliv print tablecloth
Gudrun Sjödén—A Colourful Universe is a brand new exhibition at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis that celebrates the work of Gudrun Sjödén. A renowned Swedish textile designer and global entrepreneurial force, this show promises to be a treat for the eyes, and will be on view from 27 July 2018.
The installation examines her illustrious career through original watercolours, materials from the artist’s archives and catalogues, displays of her textiles and boldly feminine apparel collections, and a pop-up shop of her clothing. ‘I am a watercolour artist and entrepreneur,’ she writes, ‘whose business idea is to make colourful clothes and home textiles in natural materials with an emphasis on Scandinavian design. The fashion is designed to be functional and versatile so it can be mixed and matched in both the short and long term in looks to suit women of all ages, shapes and sizes.’
As well as clothing, Sjödén has also recently produced a beautiful interior textiles collection, including a limited collection of vibrant tablecloths. And at Selvedge, we have some of these beautiful creations to give away to our readers. The first 100 three-year subscribers who subscribe or renew between 15th June and 15th August 2018 will receive a perfect rectangular tablecloth that will set the scene for a dinner party or afternoon tea with its Trädgårdsliv print of garden delights. The pretty colours take on an added lustre when printed on fine unbleached linen. Renew/ subscribe today with an 18 issue subscription to receive your free tablecloth.
