During spring 2017 an exhibition is on at the Fashion and Textile Museum, London, showing work from ten Swedish textile designers.
Tom Hedqvist, a founding member of the Swedish design collective 10-gruppen (formed 1970), curates the work of ten textile designers who represent 21st century Swedish design. As in the world of fashion, Swedish fabrics encompass a multitude of styles from Modernism to Romanticism, from abstract graphics to naturalistic detailing.
The exhibition features designs of Maria Åström, Martin Bergström, Olle Eksell, Josef Frank, Carl Johan Hane, Inga-Lill Westman, Synnöve Mork, Ida Pettersson, Anna Viktorsson and Maria Vinka and their manufacturers Almedahls, Boras Cotton, Designmäklarna/Frösö Handtryck, Ljungbergs/Berghems and Ikea of Sweden.
