Stig Lindberg

Few patterns in Scandinavian design history are as iconic as Berså, the famous stem of green leaves designed by Stig Lindberg (1916-1982). As one of the most influential post-war designers in Sweden Stig worked with ceramic, glass, tableware, and textile prints during his long and successful career with Gustavsberg Porcelain Factory.

Berså was produced from 1960-1974 and quickly became one of Lindberg's most beloved patterns that could be found in every other Swedish home in the 50’s. Lately the pattern has had a huge revival in Scandinavia and is now available in Australia on trays, tea towels, potholders and cushions. 

Asta Barrington

Jamida of Sweden’s stunning Shoal of Fish and Doves collections were designed by Asta Barrington who lives and works in the beautiful city of Bath in the south west of England.

Folk art, flea market finds, paper ephemera and world textiles all serve as sources of inspiration for Asta, together with her lifelong passion for colour. Her signature style consists of complex intricate patterns that entwine to form larger motifs, in particular creatures such as fantastical fish and cheeky songbirds.
