Almedahls Draken Tablecloth
The Draken (or Dragon in English) pattern, has been loved and fondly cherished by several generations of Scandinavians. The pattern was originally designed by Signe Sohlman, who was instructed by Almedahls to design a hand-woven table-cloth to the international exhibition in Amsterdam in 1877. The result was this beautiful dragon pattern, which was honored with a diploma and a gold medal for it's amazing design.
Today, the dragon pattern is still one of Almedahls most appreciated patterns. The weaving technique has changed since Signe Sohlman created the pattern, but the cloth is still woven with a large grade of accuracy in a very high quality. Details that are characteristic of workmanship from Almedahls. A perfect tablecloth for your table!
Measures: 59" x 117"
