Each one of Marie Eklund's stunning (and functional) spoons is a personality, unique and with it's own story. The woods she uses vary: at manos we have spoons made (for instance) from apple tree from Julita, chestnut from Swedenborgsgatan in Stockholm, rowan tree from Marie's own forest in Närke, birchwood from Sätergläntan in Dalarna and sallow tree from Kvarngatan in Stockholm...

Care advice
Treat the spoons once in a while with a drop of linseed oil, polish with for instance greaseproof paper for a shiny surface. Do not wash in the dishwasher.


This is how Marie describes her working process:
"Find wood with a shape that I like. The search for wood happens through for instance arborists, private gardens, woods and parks. Split the wood, use the axe to shape it into a coarse shape, carve carefully in the fiber direction (this make the spoons strong despite their thinness and narrow handle). The spoons dry slowly for a few days to gain a finer surface before clean carving, after which it is time for yet another surface treatment where I burn and treat the spoons with linseed oil several times. This makes them even stronger. The whole process takes roughly three weeks from wood to hardening.

SoFo night at manos on Thursday April 26th. We're open until 8 pm, welcome to swing by for a soft drink and nice discounts in the shop!

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.
