In 2006, Hanna & Jacob Bruce took the helm of Växbo Lin. Originally founded to carry on the tradition of producing sturdy and handsome linen textiles, the small sheds and workshops, which run on hydropower, form the last surviving flax spinning mill in Sweden. All Växbo Lin products are 100% linen, woven on machines as old as a 1923 shaft loom using wooden plugs. From selecting the flax, to spinning the threads, to designing the weave/color/texture, to weaving the fabric and sewing the pieces—a community of artisans creates these products with love.
