The Museum of National Antiquities in Stockholm presents reuse through the centuries.
By Laila Durán.

During 2007 and 2008 Durán Textiles have been working in cooperation with The Museum of National Antiquities in Stockholm. We have made reconstructions of four printed cottons from the collections of the museum. The design POPPY and LING were presented in 2007. In May 2008 arrived the charming screen print JUMPING DOG. A late 18th century design CLOVER will be presented in June. It is made to match the colours of the jumping dog design.
Read more about the fabrics at our web site

The museum shop now has products of all the fabrics on their shelves. During May and June the visitors also could see the well preserved originals in a small exhibition in the entrance hall of the museum together with reproduced fabrics, hand quilted blankets and cushion covers. The museum also has an extensive web site where more information on the original fabrics and their history can be found.

The original for the printed cotton JUMPING DOG was reused as a
lining in a chasuble form Bärbo church in Södermanland, Sweden.
The face side of the chasuble in embroidered velvet (also resused)
is dated to the 17th century. The lining is dated to 1725-50.



The exhibition of the original fabric, we named the design JUMPING DOG.

The block printed and hand painted originals for POPPY and LING.

Three fabrics are mounted covering one wall in the museum shop. The shop now also sells the fabrics by meter.

Shopping bags displayed in the entrance of the museum POPPY, LING and JUMPING DOG.
