Abstract [en]

This essay is about the Swedish textile heritage but also with an analysis of handmade hemp textiles from Transylvania. Plant fibers such as hemp and flax grown in a soil nature that existed around the subsistence farm. The knowledge of the earth nature combined with textiles has not been specifically studied in the research from the last century. By examining simple folk textiles of hemp shows how the textiles also are an universal field. The focus is on the raw material which is a transformation between nature and culture.

With a phenomenological approach, the study will describe how the textile heritage announcement molds a territory in the interpretation of "our" Swedish plantfibres for textiles uses. In this territory there are both natural science and cultural studies from the 1600- to the 2000-centuries. The study goes on comparative elements with regions in Sweden, England and France. The focus is also on the actors and voices from the past and present who shaped the Swedish textile heritage.
