Peranders-Karin Bonnet ribbon
Peranders-Karin’s home woven bonnet ribbon is the inspiration for the van Deurs bracelet made of hand pleated reindeer leather or delicate suit fabric made of wool.To weave ribbons is a dying art, an art that was inherited from generation to generation of Dalecarlian women. The ribbons are originally used for the traditional Leksand costume’s bonnet for married women. van Deurs wants to carry the art forward and give it new value.
Peranders-Karin Stark from Tasbäck, Siljansnäs, was left with eight children early when her husband died. Born in 1878 and dead by 1965, she was a kind, strong personality. There are many stories about Peranders-Karin. Susanne Beskow, designer and founder of van Deurs, is a descendant of Peranders-Karin and wishes to emphasise women and female history.
Within van Deurs brand, Susanne has developed robust, folklore tradition true to Dalarna folklore into exquisite contemporary pieces of silk smooth luxury.
