    This very special book is the result of a group of 9 dedicated people who started working together in 2000 to analyze and meticulously document over 600 older Dalsland weavings from the 1700s-1940s. Inspired to keep the old patterns and style alive, this group has selected 29 projects to present to us using modern materials. They have done meticulous sampling to ensure as near likeness to the original as possible. A little bit of history accompanies each project, showing how much there is to learn from these textiles about how people used to live. These timeless designs are truly breathtaking as well as practical. The name "Räknade Trådar" or "counted threads" refers to the endless hours this group spent counting both warp and weft threads. This is a truly beautiful book, and has been well worth their effort.
