Svenskt Tenn’s tea cosy with the Camelia print, will decorate every kitchen or table setting. The beautiful cosy will keep the teapot, bread basket or breakfast eggs warm.
This tea cosy in soft, quilted cotton fabric is decorated with beautiful, woodblock-printed flowers in red tones. The textile is printed by hand by a small, family-owned company in Jaipur, India. The design block is cut out of a timber block and then dipped in dye and pressed against the fabric like a stamp. Woodblock printing is an art form; a method of production which requires enormous precision and craftsmanship.
Eighty percent of Svenskt Tenn’s collection consists of products that are of our own design. Josef Frank alone left behind 3,000 sketches and about 250 textile designs. Sometimes Svenskt Tenn produces products based on models from the archive, which contains sketches and designs from both Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson.
