Handloom weaving was brought to the Irvine Valley, Scotland, in the late 16th century. The craft of lace making was later introduced to the area in 1876 followed shortly by the invention of the power loom in 1877. Lace and Madras weaving continued to flourish there until the late 1970s. The struggle for companies to compete with the distribution of emerging European and Asian economies had a profound effect on the Scottish textile industry. Fortunately these patterned lace panels continue to be woven in Scotland on some of the last remaining Nottingham lace looms in the world. The manufacturing process is extremely labour intensive; the looms run at a very slow, controlled pace so as to give a high level of quality control. LASSCO has been working closely with the weavers to develop a unique collection of lace panels. These patterns were selected for use in, and especially woven for, the Saloon at Brunswick House, the 1758 Georgian Vauxhall home of the Duke of Brunswick that is now the LASSCO 'flagship'. With authentic Gainsborough patterns appropriately reminiscent of the Vauxhall Gardens style, the lower edges are worked in embroidered scallops.Currently four in stock.
As a counterpoint to the her usual bright and vibrant work Josefin created an exclusive Monochrome Capsule Collection for 2016's London Design Festival. The pieces explore the balance between light and dark interwoven patterns in relation to lighting.
Josefin Landalv is a Swedish weaver and textile designer. Her creations are inspired by the naturally occurring characteristics of raw materials in combination with carefully designed woven structures. Her work draws inspiration from her Scandinavian heritage, principally through the bright, crisp primary colours and deep chiaroscuro found in Swedish folklore, landscapes and fauna.
Her lampshades are assembled with close reference to the innate natural ridged characteristics of the trees from which they ultimately derive. They are subtly coloured in a palette that draws on traditional Scandinavian as well as Senegalese hues, tones and patterns. The shades do not contain any glue or stiffening agents that could in the long run prove deleterious to the natural environment. This meticulous selection of materials combined with a conscientious preference for suppliers local to her South East London studio helps to minimise environmental impact at all stages of production.
