Woolen Norwegian Tablerunner


This hand-embroidered wool table runner is done in a technique called “klostersøm” – translated to “monastery stitch” – where the stiches are straight up and down in rows.  Star patterns are very traditional for this kind of stitch.

Excluding the fringes, the table runner is 47″ long and 13″ wide.  The colors are chocolate brown, offwhite, red, maroon, black and green – traditional colors for this kind of Norwegian embroidery.  It is silk-backed.  The item looks to have been washed.  It’s probably from the 70’s and is in relative good shape – used but well preserved.  There are no stains we can see.

It weighs just under 14oz.

This piece can be wall mounted if you add brackets or another hanging solution.
