Spira - fall and winter 2006
While drawing the collection for fall and winter 2006/07 Swedish textile company Spira found the emigrant novels “Utvandrarna” to be a great source of inspiration. Ahum. Sounds whimsical enough, that an old story of Swedish families (who disillusioned with their infertile plot of land emigrated to North America in 1844) could inspire to such great textiles. But for sure, that reading must have been something extra.
Using a limited palette of greens, yellows and browns Spira has captured the epoch authenticity, combined it with bold patterns and turned it into ultrachic fabrics for modern homes. Check out their collection and website (in Swedish).
