A rug, a tapestry, a chasuble: many different textiles are produced in the looms at Alice Lund Textiles, created by the knowledgeable hands of the weavers in our studio in Borlänge, Sweden. Using color, material, technique and intuition borne of experience, we create textiles for a specific room or space. It could be a lobby for a newly-built skyscraper on Manhattan, the chancel of the Rättvik church or a private home. Each room has its own specific characteristics to listen to. With the help of textiles, we emphasize and transform the room’s ambiance and atmosphere, a legacy that stretches back to Alice’s time.
At Alice Lund Textiles we’ve saved archival material from the entire history of our operation, 1936 to today. These materials are the foundation for the studio’s work in the looms but also for textile history research. The archive comprises thousands of sketches, photographs, woven samples and commission catalogs. We’re currently examining the material from Sofia Widéns company, a project headed by Frida Lindberg and with support from the Agnes Geijer Fund for Research on Nordic Textiles.
