Lesja Towel from Ekelund
Made in Sweden, Ekelund textiles are some of the finest woven table and kitchen linens we've found.
This design is special because it's a replica of a coverlet from Vesterheim's collection! The original coverlet (akle in Norwegian) was woven in rutevev, a geometric tapestry technique, around Lesja, Gudbrandsdal, Norway, in the late 1700s. It had belonged to relatives of former Vesterheim director, Marion Nelson. Nelson donated it to Vesterheim in 1998.
The towel is 16 x 24 inches and woven of 100% organic cotton.
