The Gulstav Weavers - Weaving

The Gulstav Weavers (Vævestedet ved Gulstav) both produce and sell woven textiles and tufted carpets in Nordic designs. Here you can also learn to weave on shaft looms

Classic weaving and modern tufting

Dorthe Højer Hansen’s dream of having her own weaving workshop came about in 2019 when the farm Egegården on the southern tip of Langeland, came up for sale. The farmhouse’s large living rooms had plenty of room for a good number looms, and provided an ideal place where this traditional craft could be taught - but using todays colours and patterns. Additionally wall hangings and carpets can be tufted in the barn.

At the Gulstav Weavers you can find things from classic household items such as dishcloths to kimonos, but in addition to weaving Dorthe also enjoys tufting colourful wall hangings and cushions.
