The geometric pattern of the Skipping Block cloth comes to life through a weaving technique known as ‘Halvdräll’.

Many Mungo designs are based on historic weaving techniques and patterns – drawing from our vast collection of antique weaving books, collected by our Master Weaver and founder, Stuart Holding, over the years. For the Skipping Block Cushions, our designer Lenore drew inspiration from a weave of Scandinavian origin, known as ‘Halvdräll’.

Playing with the design, she experimented with a whimsical palette of colours. First laying out her designs on graph paper, trialling out colours, before testing our samples on our looms. Then to be tried, tested and refined until the winning colour combinations were ready.

A design of Scandinavian origin, historically used in hand weaving, the Halvdräll’ pattern is achieved through a series of floating weft threads. The weft (crosswise threads) ‘float’ above the warp (lengthwise threads) for textural effect.

Combined with a striking use of colour and contrast that gives the Skipping Block its contemporary look and feel.
