Estrid Ericson began laminating textiles on trays back in the 1950s. Today, Svenskt Tenn's exclusive trays are available in a variety of laminated fabrics.
Svenskt Tenn’s founder Estrid Ericson travelled a lot to different places around the world. She always looked for beautiful items and textiles that she could take home and sell in the store on Strandvägen in Stockholm. The Bamboo Bird textile is from the English textile company GP & J Baker, whose designs were often based on traditional historical prints. Estrid Ericson began buying textiles from them as early as the 1930s.
