Caravanserai, Gävle/Sweden

Another remarkable experience during my trip to Gävle the other day, was the meeting with the skilled craftsmen and fashion haute couture tailors at the studio and trading house Caravanserai.

One of them has previously worked for Lebanese star designer Zuhair Murad who dressed celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift. Another one worked as a tailor in Damascus in Syria before he came to Sweden. Here they are working not only with their own textile line and restoration of second hand furnitures, but also with prominent clients like Svenskt Tenn and Ida Sjöstedt among other things.

(A caravanserai was a roadside inn where travelers (caravaners) could rest and recover from the day’s trade routes journey.)

This place – filled with ethically sustainable organic textiles in premium quality + A lot of knowledge within production in sewing, masonry, painting and wallpaper. So inspiring, can we have this in Gothenburg please?!

September work spaces

Shoots in mirrors, under beds and through soft barren greens – in order to build the myth of neat and romantic workspaces, in the city apartment and studio in Lindome.

I like the Monika Mulder designed pendant Mobil 100 for Pholc.

The Viggen wool sweater, stolen by the son.

And this neglected space, not exactly cared for by any skillful urban gardener.

Inspiration and encouragement are waiting though, through these two books on the reading list Edible Cities and Gatsmart odling.

Zorn House

As a part of the blog event #livetruntkranen with Mora Armatur we got the opportunity to see one of the most famous homes in Sweden, Anders and Emma Zorn’s. A private guided tour in the artist’s almost untouched environment. The Zorn house is filled with antiques, woven tapestries, sculptures, furnitures and paintings by Zorn himself.

Mora Armatur / Dalarna

Just landed in Gothenburg after a trip up north visiting my parents and joining this nice and quite unreal event #livetruntkranenevent invited by Mora Armatur, Catarina and Nanna. Wow Dalarna ♥

Cheese, wine and spa. I can get used to this.

Evening dinner, with lingonberry water and pine cone ice-cream for desert.

Mora Armatur’s nice people + the blog ladies Sofia, ElinNathalie & Matilda, Linda, Hanna, Nanna, me and Catarina.

Frykås, filled with “fäbodar” (traditional old log cabins) and an amazing view over Orsasjön, Siljan and the mountains.

So, day 2 we got not only a private tour to the famous Zorn house (more about that coming up), but also glimpse in Mora Armatur‘s making of faucets, which they have been doing since 1927. This old, hands on, genuine and ultra modern factory at the same time, is a pumping heart of Mora. In the workshop we had after the tour we got a closer look of the designed steel giving water around the clock to families around Sweden and some parts in the rest of the world. Yep, from now on I will look with other eyes on the water faucets I meet.

Fell in love with the series Mora One designed by architect Thomas Sandell.
