Scandinavian pattern collection

Scandinavian pattern collection Tina Backman web
This just arrived in the post! My surface pattern called Pinetree, with inspiration from Swedish nature. Screen printed onto Japanese Tengui cloths, that can be used as teatowels, handkerchiefs or headwear. Think it will look nice as table cloth for our dinner table…Can be purchased here through Kamawanu shop.


Have a wonderful summer!

Finally summer in here and it´s time for some outdoor grilling and to take some time off work…(above soya sausages:)). Want to thank my wonderful clients and agencies for the fun collaborations we´ve done so far this year. And for all sweet congratulations, cards and presents we´ve received lately, it really warms my heart, thank you! With a newborn baby I will now take some time off work but you can still always reach me through my email I will only take on a few commissions during this time but you are always welcome with you request! Have a wonderful summer everyone and see you soon. /Tina
