Techniques of Swedish Weaving — Ethnic Textile Art by Phyllis Maurer


Swedish weaving is a traditional stitching technique that was first found among linens dated to the 1600’s. During a certain period, the “fad” among Swedish embroiderers was to match the color of the table linens to the family dinnerwear. Swedish weaving was often used for this purpose. Its origin has not been precisely identified, but because of the frequency with which this technique was found on table linens, it became linked to the Swedish people. It is also known as Huck Weaving, taking the name from a type of fabric on which it was stitched, called huck toweling or huckabuck.
