Ekelund is just one of our premier weavers/mill that is recognized throughout the world for its excellence in the textile industry, a family owned Swedish mill, has been in continuous operation since 1692....a most remarkable business.
A strong tradition – research suggests that Ekelund may be the world’s oldest family run textile business in the world – never prevents them from exploring new was of working, innovative, artistic and beautiful linens designed by outstanding artisans who draw on the ancient, and virtually unknown techniques of using woven boarders to balance and frame the pattern for perfect harmony. Like the cycle of life itself, age-old creativity comes full circle when it is dusted off and embraced anew.
The art of weaving illustrates this point perfectly as Ekelund linens are unchallenged in being between the very finest woven kitchen and table linens in the world. They embody the very spirit of our mission here at Ciao Bella! “….inspiration for a life lived well.”
