This newsletter is written in order to spread experiences within the topic of historic textiles and reconstructions. Our ambition is to amuse you and stimulate interest in the 18th Century. Durán Textiles, who is mainly working with museum collections and Royal Castles, was founded in 2002 by CEO and production manager Laila Durán, with co-worker artist Torkel Henriksson who is doing the artworks and preparing the designs for production. Our production is done mostly in India supervised by Duran Textiles inspectors. 
- The articles are mainly written by Laila Durán but we also have help from colleagues and specialists from several museums and universities.  In the future this newsletter will be distributed four times a year and is free of charge. We hope you will enjoy our stories and offers and help us to spread the letter to friends and colleagues. Contact: www.durantextiles.com

Visit Vallby open air museum! 
Text and photo: Laila Duran.

Vallby Friluftsmuseum, an open air museum outside Västerås in central Sweden was founded 1921 and now celebrates its 90-year jubilee. The museum contains about 40 houses which are moved in from the region. Among others, there is both a charming big farm and a small crofters holding including animals and plantations. There is a cabbage bed, hops on stakes, fields and meadows. In the poultry-house there are geese and hens, in the pasturelands cows and sheep are grazing and there are also some happy pigs.

Durán Textiles had an invitation since this spring to visit the museum, and with great expectations we drove the way to Västerås. There we were greeted by the museum personal in costumes made in late 18th and early 20th century style, with details made of fabrics from our historic collection. Below you can meet some of the museum staff as they dress when they show the museum to visitors.

During September there are exhibitions of Swedish mushrooms and apples, and you can find more information on www.vallbyfriluftsmuseum.se.
We thank the museum for a pleasant day and wish good luck in all celebrations.
