Printed for Christmas - Christmas textiles with a focus on the 1950s and ’60s
23 September 2017–7 January 2018
Decorating the home for Christmas is an old tradition that has varied over time. The first printed Christmas tablecloths appeared as early as the 1920s but it was not until the 1950s that designers and artists were hired to design tablecloths and hangings. The colours and forms also became bolder at this time.
This exhibition offers a cavalcade of patterns divided into the various themes of Christmas. It presents 11 designers and exhibits table settings with typical details from the 1920s and onwards. In cooperation with the Textile Museum of Sweden in Borås.
