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.

Swedish folk art is known for its whimsical designs and bright colors.  The art is often incorporated with playful motifs.  The most iconic Swedish folk art is the Dala Horse.   The red color on the horse is often found on classic Swedish houses.  The Dala Horse comes in many colors though.

Danish folk art is closely associated with the concept of hygge.  There is no direct translation of the word, but hygge describes a feeling of comfort, coziness and warmth.  Danish folk art is often characterized by simple designs and muted colors and is used to create a sense of calm and tranquility.

Norwegian folk art is known for a form called “Rosemaling” or rose painting.  Flowers are often used in Norwegian folk art, but other everyday motives are used as well.

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.
