Vildvuxet at manos - an Sofo night with Lisen Sundgren - author of the book Vildvuxet - and Nadia Nörbom who´s illustrated the 95 edible plants included in the book. 

We've sold the popular book Vildvuxet – mat och huskurer från naturen, by Lisen Sundgren, beautifully and sensitively illustrated by Nadia Nörbom, since it was released in 2017. Now we would like to invite you to a unique evening where you will meet these two very inspiring persons live here at manos. Lisen and Nadia will talk about the book, which can be seen as a guide to over 95 edible plants available in Sweden (out of 250 in total). You will also be treated to Lisens wild grown menu with ingredients such as nettle, pine and birch.

 

Here at manos we're delighted to present a window exhibition of Ida Björses hand tufted rugs - shown in the window 20/3-10/4 and later as a part of the shop collection. This is how Ida herself describe the rugs:
 
"Bum is a rug made to invite the user to sit on the floor. It is inspired by moss in nature and the shape is formed from a butt print. It is hand tuffted by me and my partner Karin Björklind and its 100% wool from yarn that is left over from the rug industry.

I want to create objects to make other reflect on the behaviour and find their own way of doing things. With a positive approach i want to show alternatives for the way of everyday life."

L. E. Tanttu show On the fly at manos 

 

The fabrics shown in the exhibition On the fly are naturally dyed and screenprinted by hand to form unique pieces of wall art. The motif this time is birds. 

L. E. Tanttu have for many years created and printed posters by hand in their Jollygoodfellow Printing Studio. Now they complement with textiles for the wall. ”We have long thought about textiles in interior design, they have a great ability to so en and to dampen sound. In our home we like to have as much light as possible, so we skip curtains, instead we choose to hang the fabric on the wall. ”

Vendor: Martin de la Foi
Type:
Price: 700.00

Blue and White Pillow Case Made From Vintage Linen ”Guest Towels” (with the swedish word for guest ”gäst” embroidered on it).

Swedish photographer Martin de la Foi found himself with a collection of linen when his parents passed away. Carefully handmade and embroidered by his mother or her mother… All of them carrying too much soul for him to ignore. It would be a shame to move them into yet another closet. And it would be a shame to end their extraordinary life in yet another kitchen. So he decided to bring them to life by giving them a new purpose. Relieving them from the hard work of being a kitchen towel by offering a better and more relaxed role in the comfort of a home. Each cushion is unique and named after Martins relatives.

Size: 46 x 39 cm (18.1 x 15.3 inches)

Material: Linen. Please note: This pillow case is sewn from towels that have been used for generations. The fabric may have minor discolorations.

Care: Can be washed in the washing machine at up to 60 degrees C. Treat spots as soon as possible. Bile soap or linseed oil soap works on most stains. Never use bleach on linen. Red wine stains are treated with boiling water. Pour the water through the stain with a bowl underneath.

Lower or remove the spin completely if possible. Tumble drying shortens the life span of the linen.

Stretch the linen after wash and hang it to dry. Mangle or iron well dampened on high temperature.
