  • Design

    Svenskt Tenn’s founder Estrid Ericson travelled a lot to different places around the world. She always looked for beautiful items and textiles and souvenirs that she could take home and sell in the store on Strandvägen in Stockholm. She designed this print with small elephants, based on a model from the Belgian Congo. The Elefant (Elephant) textile was printed for the first time in the end of the 1930s.

    Elefant is since 2013 screen printed on wallpaper in several different colour ways. A printing technique chosen to give the wallpaper the right expression and enhances the elephants distinct shape against the plain surface. The wallpaper is available in a number of colours, including the colour red.

    Estrid Ericson/Svenskt Tenn

    Svenskt Tenn developed this design using Estrid Ericson's print.

    Estrid Ericson began her career as a drawing teacher and pewter artist. But what really set her apart during her 56 years as managing director for Svenskt Tenn were her abilities as a producer and scenographer. Ericson never had an aesthetic programme mapped out, but she had an imaginative person’s perceptiveness for the many faces of beauty.

  • Care instructions

    Remove any grease stains on the wallpaper by scraping away the excess grease with a blunt knife. Begin at the edges and work your way in so the stain doesn’t spread. Pat some potato flour or baby powder on the stain to help absorb the grease. Brush away the powder remains with a soft brush. If the grease stain remains, place a clean tissue paper on the stain and iron it on low heat.

    Allow wet stains, for example mud, to dry thoroughly before brushing them with a soft brush. Many light stains can be removed with old white bread. Gently rub a piece of moist bread on the stain until it fades.
