Love-sweets and Honey pies -on textile inspiration and the sweet favorites in life. 
Text Laila Durán. Photo Jenny Grimsgård.

The Swedish authors Emma Hamberg and Anette Rosvall have published a new book with recipes for guaranteed happiness! In 101 different ways you get advice how to achieve a more curving body, a happier stomach, a more even temper, or just what to do when you need comfort after a long and hard working day. The answers are given in their book of cakes: Kärleksmums-101 söta favoriter, Love-yum-yum and 101 sweet favorites.

Imagine a whole chapter about ”deed good dishes” where ”the house mommies” are singing praise to the body, worshiping curves, swelling bosoms and the right to bodily pleasure! To support this they have designed recipes as: Anette’s heavenly chocolate cake and Egyptian nights…….The latter irresistibly illustrated by a corset in the chocolate brown and violet silk VIOLA. The book, which has the all-pervading theme: that a lot o sugar is a good thing, and more sweet is even better, is a celebration to love and the important moments of yum-yum in life. The fabrics from Durán Textiles have been included to illustrate the different topics. In the beautiful photos cakes, sweet pies, puddings and Christmas sweets are mixed with sparkling silks and comforting printed cottons

With greetings from Emma Hamberg and Anette Rosvall we give away three books to our readers.
Just e-mail your name and postal address to Durán Textiles. For more information about the book wiev:

This is what author Emma Hamberg writes: “ Their textiles are not just beautiful, they are magical too. As if the fabrics themselves carries secrets, layers of history, romances, sorrow and adventure. To present our pastry with Duran textiles has been an inspiration and a pleasure.
