Estrid Ericson was a traveller and she collected various designs during her travels. The Panama pattern was first produced in 2008, and the design was then taken from Estrid Ericson’s husband Captain Sigfrid Ericson's braided summer hat, the Panama hat.
Eighty percent of Svenskt Tenn’s collection consists of products that are of our own design. Josef Frank alone left behind 2,000 furniture sketches and about 160 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.
