“With the ÅKERKULLA textile collection I was inspired by old Swedish country weddings, unmatched textiles, delicate summer flowers, etc. The old wreaths and medallions on the wallpaper in my grandparent’s house were also with me when I painted the patterns.”

When childhood memories are transformed into textile patterns
After living in Japan for five years and Italy for 13, Sweden and Swedishness are more important than ever for designer Eva Lundgreen. That’s why working with ÅKERKULLA textile collection was very sentimental. A longing for her homeland combined with nostalgic memories of spending summers on her grandparent’s farm when she was a child. Now she captured it all on a quilt cover, cushions and rugs.
Swedish folk art patterns and folklore are close to Eva Lundgreen’s heart. So when she was asked to design a textile collection based on old Swedish folk culture, Eva shouted for joy inside. Maybe it was because she was in the middle of Tokyo at the time, a world that is very far from the farm in northern Sweden where she spent her summers as a child. It was just the memories and feelings from those summers that determined the colours and designs on the ÅKERKULLA textile collection.
Eva browsed through old books of crochet patterns and looked at lots of old photos, but it was medallion wallpaper, floral porcelain and her grandmother’s heavy silk quilt that inspired her the most.
“I loved country life on the farm – and in my memory, it’s glorified and nostalgic. I remember large strawberry fields and potato and carrot crops, all the animals on the farm and the memory of riding in a hay cart,” says Eva with a tinge of nostalgia in her voice.
It was actually during a trip to Malaysia at Christmas time that the memories came back to her – and the ideas started to roll. In that relaxing environment, inspiration flourished and Eva sketched and painted several patterns that she then collected in a little folder with her basic ideas for the collection. A folder that she would later send to IKEA in Sweden.
“I had thought a lot about the foundation that I wanted to base the collection on. There’s an underlying Swedish tone in everything I do, where there’s room for cheerfulness and playfulness in the midst of the somewhat strict,” says Eva. That really went home with IKEA. Nearly all of Eva’s initial sketches were used to create the ÅKERKULLA textile collection. Here you can find florals in all forms. On a panel curtain, a quilt cover, cushions, rugs and metre fabrics. Just like in Eva’s grandparent’s home.
