Marius Towel and Table Runner from Ekelund
The designer Unn Soiland made history in the 1950s, designing new innovative handknit patterns, and using wool with bright colors. This became popular and "Norwegian sweaters" became a great international fashion. The Marius design later became a Norwegian icon by being the most handknitted pattern in Norway over the last 65 years.
In 2002 Soiland was honored by the Norwegian Royal Medal of Merit in Gold for her lifelong pioneer work of developing handknitting and making Norwegian wool designs famous internationally.
