Exhilarated by clear skies and icy temperatures, our crew of cross country skiers take to the trail, weaving through the aspen grove over freshly fallen snow. Fox, bear and their new friend ram, skipped hibernation and migration this year to play in the snow and enjoy the many wonders of winter. Their warm, brightly stitched coats are inspired by the traditional costumes of the Sami people, who are native to Scandinavia and pioneered Nordic skiing. This runner measures about 78″ long x 18″ wide. The pattern repeats along the entire length of the runner, making a beautiful display. Embroidery on 100% linen with linen backing. Care: Spot clean, iron on steam setting.
This RISD-trained textile designer creates her cheeky scenes and irreverent characters as original pencil drawings before she painstakingly redraws them stitch by stitch using special computer software. Finished by hand in New York, every machine-embroidered pillow, tea towel, runner, and artwork retains the story-telling spirit and hand-drawn allure of the original illustration. A mix of smart design, magic, and mischief is at the heart of this embroidery.
