BOOM CRAFT STUDIO
Founded and run by
Linda Zetterman & Sara Carlsson
Boom craft studio works with a completely artisanal production of textiles both in their studio in Stockholm, Sweden and in collaboration with artisans in Kutch, India. Together we make limited series of the most beautiful hand crafted textiles. Deep knowledge and craft traditions are closely related to our textiles and design language. The use of locally sourced sustainable organic natural fibers and pigments is part of the vision. As well as reuse already existing textile materials and work for social ethical awareness and full transparency. The production chain takes place without any intermediaries. The studio offers workshops in natural dyeing for both professionals and students. The studio also integrates with art projects that aims to create a link in between craftsmanship, knowledge and sustainability.
The website will be launched in 2023.

The fabric is made of organic cotton and has been block-printed with clay resist and overdyed with natural indigo. Each kimono is unique in its expression and printed in collaboration with Juned Khatri @ajrakh.art in Ajrakhpur, Kutch, India. The region is known for its diverse and rich craft heritage. The name Khatri means “He who fills the surface with colour”.
Block printing gives a natural variation on the surface and plant dyes give vivid shades that change over time.
The kimono is cut and sewn by Babu Bhai in the village of Dhori in the same region. The sewing machine has a central place in the home and Babu have like many craftsmen in India, inherited the tailoring profession from his father.
Boom craft studio work exclusively with natural dyeing methods, organic yarns and fabrics. We believe in long-term relationships, crafting and transparency. It is good for both people and the environment!
