Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Elisabeth Dunkers fabrics

My blog friend Elisabeth has made some awesome fabric patterns for Swedish textiles company Mairo. It will be shown on the Formex fair in August, and I hope it is going to be available in stores later this autumn, because I can't wait to buy some! The "Strössel" design, with the chocolate ball pattern (does anyone make chocolate balls outside of Sweden?) would be perfect for birthday parties, don't you think?


She also made this supercute elephant pattern that is going to be on bedlinen and rollerblinds, also for Mairo.

    I was so thrilled to see the fabric on her blog yesterday, and am even happier to see the elephant print here, too. I just adore Elisabeth's illustrations and designs, and am so happy that they'll be available to the public!

    The fabric is great! I love it! my mum makes truffles (I think the same sort of thing as chocolate balls) every Christmas - rolled in vermicelli or dessicated coconut! The fabric is just perfect for this!

    Wow - Great to see the Mairo website. I've got a few of their things I bought from a shop in Sydney. Good to see where they originally came from. Cheers Anna-Lisa xxxx

    We make and sell chocolate balls in Australia. We started a Facebook Swedish chocolate ball page a few days ago and there is nearly 2000 fans. Testament to their yummyness! :)
