The large size of this embroidery, together with the country life theme and mood tones, would suit a range of interiors from Traditional to Contemporary.

Around 1870 several embroidery shops opened in Copenhagen, Denmark. Clara Wæver showed great talent for embroidery and was hired for an embroidery shop. In 1890 Clara Wæver opened her own shop at Vesterbrogade 62. She sold materials for different kind of embroideries and produced patterns. In 1903 Clara Wæver purchased a big collection of original drawings by the Danish artists Bindesbøll, Constantin Hansen, Kristian Møhl-Hansen and P.C. Skovgård. She was very successful while working with these artists.
In 1917 the Wæver sisters handed over the shop to N.C.Dyrlund, who continued producing the rich traditional embroideries. Clara Wæver died in 1930. In 1940 Jacob Holst took over the company.

In 1953 Jørgen Rosenstand, the son of Jacob Holst, took over the leadership. In 1958 he founded his own company: Eva Rosenstand A/S. Eva Rosenstand´s style within embroidery was from the start very different to the one of Clara Wæver´s. Drawings from Danish artists like Falke-Bang, Leif Ragn Jensen and Verner Hancke were used, and the style was more modern/popular/naturalistic for the taste in those years. He introduced in a very early stage the so-called ´ready-made kit´, with all the necessary materials for a cross-stitch design that could be delivered to people`s homes. In 2003 the Danish company Carl J. Permin A/S took over Eva Rosenstand / Clara Wæver.
