Bantie is Ulrika Gyllstad and Wilhelmina Wiese, Stockholm-based textile designers with a collection of patterns that definitely scream I am Scandinavian, don’t you think?
The more popular prints that I noticed around the city are Kokeshi, Paradis, Bubbel and Korall, especially Paradis with the birds and Korall with the organic circles resembling something from the sea.

There’s nothing like a little Monday morning print and pattern indulgence and I always love to see what textile designer Clare Nicolson is up to so let’s enjoy her for a moment, shall we?
Clare is so super talented with her cute colorful designs, it’s fun to see what’s she’s cooking up. Her cushions are as sweet as ever and her tea towels are the best.

I’m always watching Metremade on etsy to see what this Australian textile designer will have next. Ooooh look at these two patterns…
Currently, she’s working with black and green and I love the results. Both patterns are available in either two colorways, green/white or black/white and I think they’re very special – so fresh. I’d love to see these on a bench or chair, especially a chair like this one.

Here’s another little shop I liked in Stockholm called HildaHilda located in the SoFo district. The playful prints are joyous and energetic and for some reason, reminded me of textiles I’d been exposed to during my early years spent in England. I really liked the weight of them, so thick and tightly woven, making them perfect for upholstery and throw cushions because they’ll last forever. I loved the dogs and window patterns the best.
