News Spring & Summer 2011 Variation and inspiration

are the keywords for the Swedish Mairo. With the great number of patterns, all of them in many colour combinations, Mairo offers tradition, surprising solutions and unlimited combination possibilities. Mairo designs, develops and sells home furnishing products, particularly in the form of decorative textiles and roller blinds. Our long-term co-operation with established designers has resulted in a great number of enthralling and creative patterns. Swedish tradition Mairo fabrics originate from traditional and genuine handicraft and all of them are printed at our own printing plant in Blekinge. The colours are weighed and mixed by hand, then poured, also manually, into the 18-metre long printing machine. Each step of the process, from light exposure to laying patterns on the printing mats, is done by hand, with perfect precision and feeling. After printing, every single metre of the printed fabric is inspected, before it is carefully rolled up. Because we mix our colours ourselves, we have the chance to produce the exact colour and the exact tint we wish to get. The colours, from colour paste to ready colour, are water-based and environmentally friendly. At the same time we are still looking for new and even more environmentally friendly solutions. We always print whole roles of fabrics consisting of natural fibres, such as pure linen, half-linen and pure cotton. Welcome to be inspired! Regards from


Design Ida Arnfelt

Ida Arnfelt Ida gets mostly inspired of a form or a movement, around which she creates an own, little world. It is especially interesting to find half abstract shapes which, in different contexts, or through small changes, form something new. Her style is often rather graphical. The interest and the need to express herself through picture and form, has always been strong for Ida. Ida knew that she would work with pattern design already when she graduated from Beckmans School of Design, with focus on Advertisement and graphical form, 2009. The idea of her examination work was to tell a story through a wallpaper pattern. Since then Ida has run her own enterprise, Ida Arnfelt Studio, where she works as a graphic designer and illustrator, but the focus lies most on just pattern design.

In the pattern Pinje...

Ida, as she so often does, brings her inspiration from the nature. She wanted to create a depth and a flow in this pattern. Ida says: �I was sitting at home in my apartment in Stockholm and looked through a book about plants and animals and decided on the shape of a pine branch, which is graphic and organic at the same time.An expression that I often return to when I design patterns. The shape grew very intuitive. I like to depict nature scenes on a new and a bit stylistically way rather than the fully faithful. �

Styvmorsviol & Viola Design Linda Svensson Edevint

Linda Svensson Edevint Vigorous patterns that take much space and that are visible in their context are characteristic for Linda´s style. Because of her confidence in form and colour she has received great interest not only in Sweden, but also internationally. During her co-operation with Mairo she has designed the patterns ”Hosta” and ”Ranka”. Love-in-idleness´ blue-violet petals float in the wind. She is proud to stand on the meadow hill with the other pansies. The grass is green and lush. Spring is in the air! Viola is the baby sister of Styvmorsviol in a smaller version.


Design Ann Wessblad

Ann Wessblad Ann Wessblad is a product designer, educated at School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg. A great deal of her work is devoted to drawing patterns for textiles. She finds that the challenge and the interest for the work lies in finding a rhythm and a balance in the interplay between colour and form, and in that the possibilities are infinite... Inspiration to the pattern Mizu was: water that drips, water that drizzles, water that splashes, water like hail, water like ice, water like rain, water that flows, water like snow, water that murmurs...
