Susanne Beskow grew up in Stockholm, but her parents lived in Tasbäck situated in Dalarna. True to her roots from the Dalarna region, Susanne has developed new designs from old crafts such as the weaving technique of fine ribbons, typical from the Dalarna region. Celebrating the local craftsmanship in combination with tradition and contemporary expression. Today only a handful women know how to make these fine

ribbons. Swedish folklore tradition, and especially patterns and designs from the outfit of Leksand, Dalarna is a true source of inspiration in the making of creations for Van Deurs. Accessories like ipad cases or bracelets from pleated rein deer leather in combination with old hand woven ribbons being some examples where old technologies meet modern needs.
