Grandma Eivor / by Michelle Urvall Nyren

My grandmother Eivor moved from Stockholm to Gothenburg to join the textile arts and crafts circle in the 1960’s. She worked with batik patterns and created incredible textiles of which she made clothes for herself and for the twins she was expecting.

My sister and I have kept many of her designs and sometimes wear the dresses and tops that are no too fragile. The baby clothes were all made in two sets for the twin boy and girl. Tragically Eivor passed away during child birth and never met my mom and her twin brother.
