Techniques of Swedish Sollerosom — Ethnic Textile Art by Phyllis Maurer


One of Sweden’s most recognized provinces is Dalarna, long famous for the decorative red and blue Dala horses. Another, less well-known folk art also comes from this area – the needlework technique called Sollerosom (or Soleron.) This unique form of stitching is found on the textiles of Lake Siljan, a lake located in central Sweden that was created as a result of a meteorite impact. Solleron Island, which is located on this lake, has given its name to the unique technique created there.
