Book The World Of Vibeke Klint

The World of Vibeke Klint celebrates the career of the great Danish weaver, Vibeke Klint (1927-2019), spanning over half a century.

The book provides an insight into a craft and workshop life that is almost non-existent in Denmark, and presents for the first time a selection of Vibeke Klint’s sketches, watercolours and weaving samples, which give an impression of her working methods.

Vibeke Klint developed her textiles in close dialogue between her watercolours, materials and the weaving craft. In an age when the craft is challenged, we can all learn and find inspiration from the story of an artist who had craft as her focal point.

Vibeke Klint (1927-2019)

Vibeke Klint (1927-2019) has been described as the 20th century’s most significant Danish weaver and designer.

Material

All rugs by NORDICMODERN are made of 100% wool from New Zealand

Wool has a natural coating of fat which makes it dirt repellant.

Furthermore, as opposed to most other fibres, wool does not burn.

Thus, wool does not need to be treated with fire retardants in order to be used even at places with special fire requirements.

Maintenance

Easily maintained – high quality wool

Daily cleaning

Use the vacuum cleaner frequently when the rug is new. It is normal that the rug produces shed fluff for a period of time. Vacuum in the direction of the plie and never with the brush down.

Stains

Immediately dab the area with a white cotton cloth to prevent the stain from penetrating the fibres.

Carefully sprinkle a bit of water on the stain and dab again with a white cotton cloth.

If the stain does not disappear, the rug should be cleaned by a professional, for instance: Vaskeriet.dk

In order to avoid staining from the floor it is recommended to use an underlay.

Rugs in warp repp technique should always have an underlay.

The use of an underlay also assures that the rug lies even and prolongs the lifetime of the rug

Wear

It is a good idea to turn the rug around twice a year to avoid uneven wear and to place e.g. plastic or felt protection under the feet of heavy furniture standing on the rug.

Note that the colors may fade if the rug is exposed to strong sunlight for a longer period of time.
