The name Solwang Design is based on Dorte's surnames Soland and Wang. Solwang Design released the first collection in August 2009 and several have followed since.
The knitted designs are Solwang's own on the basis of Dorte's grandmother’s wonderful homemade kitchen textiles. She is working to expand the range, and several of her grandmother’s practical and cute solutions for the kitchen will appear in the product range in the time to come. Some will be with a modern twist, such as our very popular knitted towel.
The woven textiles are made with a selection of colours from the knit collections. This makes it possible to mix the colours and fabrics to give the kitchen a personal look and to create an individual expression.
All products are inspected and approved at the Danish Technological Institute for colour fastness at 60 degrees celsius wash (which is the temperature recommended by health authorities in Denmark), absorption, chemical contents and shrinkage.
