LINUM a Norwegian blockprint.
By Laila Durán.

The latest design from Durán Textiles derives from collections of the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, Oslo, Norway. The original is an apron from Hordaland, Norway, (inv. nr: NF 1988-0072) and came to the museum through the textile collection of Mrs Gunvor Ingstad Trætteberg. The Apron is made of linen block printed in red blue and golden brown. The print can probably be dated to the mid or late 19th century, and was printed with borders to be used as an apron. The style of the design is regional and it is probable that the print was manufactured in Norway. Aprons of this kind were worn as Sunday best clothes when going to church. Our reproduction is hand made block print on cotton.
