For 16 generations and over 450 years, the Ekelund Family has worked using textiles.
Borg Larsson, the family's eldest known member, was born in 1540. The time was characterised by self-subsistence and on the farms people wove the textiles they needed. The Ekelund Family’s livelihood then developed from these skills. However, it was not until some time into the next century, that one could discern the contours of what is now the Ekelund brand.
Today Ekelund uses modern computer controlled jacquard looms.
