    Estrid Ericson began laminating textiles on trays back in the 1950s. Today, Svenskt Tenn's exclusive trays are available in a variety of laminated fabrics, including Japanese Magnolia.

    Svenskt Tenn’s founder Estrid Ericson travelled a lot to different places around the world. She always looked for beautiful items and textiles that she could take home and sell in the store on Strandvägen in Stockholm. Estrid Ericson began buying textiles from GP & J Baker as early as the 1930s.

    Japanese Magnolia, with its naturalistic depictions of magnolia blossoms inhabited by birds and butterflies, was designed by William Turner in 1917 and was first-hand block printed onto a fine linen.  No trace can be found of it being printed after this date so it subsequently became a hidden gem in the renowned GP & J Baker archive. It is over 100 years old, but as relevant today as when it was first created.

    Designer

    GP & J Baker/Svenskt Tenn

    Svenskt Tenn developed this design using GP & J Baker's fabric.

    GP & J Baker is a family-run company founded in 1884 by brothers George Percival and James Baker. Together with their father they travelled around the Far East and Asia purchasing designs, textiles, sketches and thousands of pattern books that are today in the Baker’s sizeable textile archives. Svenskt Tenn became one of Baker’s first customers in Sweden when Josef Frank, inspired by Baker’s designs, introduced the company to Estrid Ericson in the 1930s.

  • Care instructions

    Svenskt Tenn’s trays are durable and can either be cleaned by hand or put in the dishwasher on a gentle cycle. Dishwasher detergent can, however, cause visible wear on the surface with frequent washing.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Birch Veneer & Textile

    Forests play a crucial roll in the global environment. The forest industry employs close to 14 million people, accounting for one per cent of the global gross domestic product (GDP). Approximately 500 million people depend on the forest for their livelihood and hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs around the world rely on the forest for fibre and raw material. Therefore, as both businesses and consumers, we should take measures to protect the forest for future generations. One way to do this is to encourage working with sustainably harvested wood as much as possible.

    Wood is renewable, reusable and bio- degradable, and all of our trays and coasters are FSC-certified. FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) is an international, independent organisation that promotes environmentally responsible forest management, but unlike other certifications, it also takes social and economic aspects into consideration.

    This is how Svenskt Tenn’s textile trays are manufactured

    The manufacture of Svenskt Tenn’s trays takes place at Åry Trays in Nybro. The production of the textile trays begins with sheets being cut out from textile rolls with patterns by Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson. The press operator then rolls the lint off each sheet, before they are placed in powerful presses together with birch veneer, lacquer and adhesive.

    The presses are set and adapted based on the size of the trays and they are then pressed together at a pressure of approximately 20 – 25 kg/cm2 and a temperature of approximately 125 – 130°C. After that, they remain in the press for some 6 – 7 minutes before being taken out in order to cool down slowly.

    The cooled trays are driven through a rondell milling cutter in order to receive the correct shape, before being polished by hand so that the edges become softly rounded. Finally, it’s time to inspect the trays before they receive an EAN label and are packed for shipment to Svenskt Tenn.
