Scandinavian Print Fabrics – by Finlayson

Scandinavian Print Fabrics – by Finlayson

Patterns are a great way of adding interest to an interior. I love graphic patterns in black and white, but also in bold colours. Both of which are very typical in modern Scandinavian prints.

As I was looking the print fabrics that I have in our own home, I suddenly realised that many of them are from a Finnish textile company Finlayson. It’s not something that was planned, but clearly, I must like their prints!

Finlayson is one of the oldest textile companies in Finland. It was founded in year 1820 by a Scottish (!) James Finlayson (why did James decide to move to Finland and start his factory there? No idea. But I’m glad he did!) Recently the company has made a strong comeback and it seems that we can expect to see more beautiful prints coming out. Here are photos of some of the Finlayson prints that I have in our home (if you check out my Instagram feed @katisuard there are more to be seen):

So I guess it’s fair to say that Finlayson has become one of my go-to brands when I’m looking for home textiles either for myself of for my projects 🙂
