The bookazine has landed!

HÅNDVÆRK bookazine
Laøhlé

English translation: Dorte Herholdt Silver

I just received HÅNDVÆK bookazine no. 2, fresh from the printing press. The bookazine has also reached many kiosks around Denmark and other retail outlets that are still open. Meanwhile, ‘the textile issue’ is also moving out into the big wide world outside Denmark, through the channels selected by our international distribution partner. Much more about that later.

In HÅNDVÆRK no. 2, among many other features, you can read about the people behind the weaving mill Kjellerup Væveri; the spinning mill Silkeborg Uldspinderi’s new profile; textile designer Vibeke Rohland; textile designer Helle Trolle; indigo specialists BUAISOU; the passementerie factory Århus Possementfabrik; furniture designer Kaper Thorup; and textile designer Ragnhild Hjalmarsdóttir Højgaard.

You can also join me on a visit to the Danish island of Ærø, where I met with Monica Konradsen, who runs Hotel The Monica, and with the weaver Dorthe Rejkjær, who makes hand-woven coats and jackets.
Apropos of clothing, I did a slow-fashion photo shoot in Brussels; and apropos of fashion, HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 2 also gives you some useful textile facts. For example, you can read about Tencel, which is a good, sustainable alternative to silk, and about wool, which is another eco-friendly choice, despite the fact that sheep – like cows – fart and thus emit Co2!

And apropos of wool, in this photo I combine a woollen top and a woollen skirt from the Danish brand Laøhlé with stuff from my own wardrobe.


Laøhlé writes about their GOTS-certified merino wool: Our merino wool comes from an Argentine/Italian manufacturer.
The GOTS label guarantees that 95% of the end product consists of eco-certified raw materials, produced under good conditions where all the workers are paid a liveable wage. GOTS also includes strict requirements that any chemicals used in the production process are biodegradable.

Like many other types of wool, merino wool is anti-bacterial and self-cleansing. Another benefit is that it does not absorb smell to the same degree as other textiles – therefore we encourage you to wash the garment only when necessary, always using a detergent for delicate wool types. If your knitwear needs to be freshened up, it is often enough to simply air it out or briefly put it in the freezer.

If you do not have a bookazine dealer near you, you can order your issue directly from me.


PÅ DANSK. Nu står jeg med det i favnen

HÅNDVÆK bookazine no.2 er landet hos mig og i mange kiosker rundt omkring i Danmark og hos de øvrige forhandlere, som holder åbent for tiden.
I den store verden uden for Danmark er ”the textile issue” på vej ud i de kanaler, som vores internationale partner har valgt ud. Meget mere om det senere.

I HÅNDVÆRK no. 2 kan du blandt meget andet læse om menneskene bag Kjellerup Væveri, Silkeborg Uldspinderis nye profil, tekstildesigner Vibeke Rohland, tekstildesigner Helle Trolle, indigospecialisterne BUAISOU, Århus Possementfabrik, møbeldesigner Kaper Thorup og tekstildesigner Ragnhild Hjalmarsdóttir Højgaard. Du kan også tage med til Ærø, hvor jeg mødtes med Monica Konradsen, som driver Hotel The Monica, og med væveren Dorthe Rejkjær, som håndvæver frakker og jakker.

Apropos beklædning, så har jeg i Bruxelles fotograferet en slow fashion-billedserie – og apropos mode, så får du også i HÅNDVÆRK bookazine no. 2 nogle nyttige tekstilfakta. Du kan blandt andet læse om Tencel, som ud fra et bæredygtighedsprincip er et vældig godt alternativ til silke, og du kan læse om uld, som til trods for, at får ligesom køer prutter og dermed udleder Co2, alligevel er et miljømæssigt super godt valg.

Og apropos uld, så har jeg her på billedet mikset ulden top og ulden nederdel fra danske Laøhlé med tøj fra garderoben.
