A picture of the 1960’s drawing Apple Tree from the Nordiska Archive With a brief history of it’s origins
Apple Tree was designed by Ingegerd Hyltén-Cavallius in 1962
Ingegerd started young at Nordiska of Gothenburg, and worked her whole life as a professional visual artist, furthering her education in textiles, graphics, watercolour and enamel.
Nordiska classic Apple Tree, which was also sold through The Needlewoman Shop in London in the 60's, is the second design by Ingegerd that we republish from the Nordiska archive.
With the reprinting on contemporary linen, we have chosen a fabric larger than the original. In the 60's, Sunflowers was a kit for a small cushion, only 12" x 12" cm.
The photographs here show the kit, the original drawing with date stamps on the back, the 60's linen colours, and a page from The Needlewoman Shop Catalogue from 1968.
On this page you can also see other designs from the collection chosen by The Needlewoman Shop from Nordiska of Gothenburg.
