Scandinavian Folk Art Sublimation Print

Our standard is that you will love your handmade charcuterie board with Scandinavian folk art.  It is crafted to last for generations.  It is made of all solid wood with no stabilizing filler such as plywood or particle board.  No two charcuterie boards are ever alike.  Knots, cracks and dents are incorporated into the design and are not covered up.

Scandinavian folk art has a long history, dating way back to the Viking Age. It is influenced by traditional Nordic designs and mythologies.
Folk art was primarily made by rural craftsmen, who created functional and decorative objects for everyday use. This included furniture, textiles, ceramics, wooden toys, household items, and of course charcuterie boards.  The designs were painted with watercolors and milk paint.  Folk art would depict animals, flowers, houses, furniture and folklore.

There are many wolfs in the Norse mythology and culture.  Odin’s two wolfs, Geri and Freki, are among the more famous ones.  They represent protection, strength and loyalty.  If Vikings saw a wolf before or during a battle it meant Odin was nearby.

The Vikings would wear a wolf tooth as a token of divine protection and divine intervention in their lives.

Folk art still flourishes in Scandinavia and is practiced by traditional folk artists. To this day Scandinavian folk art is a significant part of its culture.

When you can, have candles and fresh flowers on your table.
