Multifunctional Linens from Karin Carlander

January 13, 2016

We recently came across the work of Danish designer Karin Carlander, who focuses on multifunctionality and “new interpretations of our ancient crafts,” as she says. A Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts alum, Carlander has a clever approach to textiles in domestic life: Aprons can be used as bread bags, tea towels as colanders, placemats as food wrap, and more. Her core project, Textile No., is made up of linens in organic cotton, wool, linen, and sisal. Here’s a look.
