The Viken Trivets showcase the vibrant blocks of color you can achieve with this warp-faced weave structure. Viken means ‘the inlet’ or ‘the cove’ in Swedish, a sheltered spot on the coast. The design is an abstract sun glowing just below the horizon, the view from our small boats after weathering the storm. The slubbiness of Mallo offers subtle texture and glimpses of the weft.
In rep weave, the alternating color patterns are created entirely through the warp color order. By alternating between thick and thin wefts, you change the blocks of color that can be shown.
