Ekelund Kitchen Towels
The Linen of Kings...
The Ekelund family have been purveyors to the Royal Court of Sweden for over a century. Our very first documented delivery took place in 1878. The order was probably placed in connection with Crown Prince Gustav´s visit to our mill in 1877. Even after ascending the throne, Gustav V remained an esteemed customer, as did his son, Gustav VI Adolf. We are also pleased to acommodate our present king, Carl XVI Gustav.
Supplying linen goods to Russia, which has the world's largest industrial production of linen, is unusual. Being favored with an exclusive order from the Kremlin is rarer still; but in 1996 we were proud to deliver custom tablcloths and napkins to the stately banquet halls.
His Majasty Akihito of Japan, the last remaining emperor, purchased Ekelund tablecloths on a visit to Sweden in 2000.
