ÄLSKADE KORG!

Showroom, Nordanå, Skellefteå

The exhibition lifts the basket from perspectives such as sustainability, own creation and history. The exhibition shows a large amount of baskets, materials and basket binding techniques from different parts of Sweden.

The exhibition Älskade korg! wants to arouse curiosity about the craft, show the diversity of baskets in Sweden and tell about our rich basket tradition around the country. Mushroom basket, carrier basket, trash can, shopping basket.

The basket as carrying aid, transport and storage has a long tradition in Sweden and basket furniture is trending in our interior design stores. The basket in digital form also has a given place in the online stores. However, there are not many basket makers left in Sweden and the knowledge of how to tie and braid baskets disappears.

Skellefteå will also have some locally made baskets in the exhibition and there will also be various handicraft activities with a theme of basket
