About the pattern, from designer Åse Öjbro
"With the Ekshärad pattern, I want to capture the spirit found in these life-affecting crosses in Ekshärad,
that contains so much Swedish culture history and craftsmanship.
The Iron Cross is called Life Tree, it is an ancient Christian symbol that reminds us that even though people die, life never ends.
The life trees make Ekshärad an international attraction that is found on stamps and encyclopedias.
Thanks to Prosten Krook, there are many old crosses preserved, the oldest being from the end of the 1600s.
There are over 500 iron crosses in the cemetery in Ekshärad. Iron crosses are still being manufactured in the Stjärnfors forge. A craft that has been inherited in generations."
