  • Design

    Estrid Ericson travelled a great deal and collected various objects and designs during her travels. She often decorated items by putting something else on them. The Panama matchbox went into production in 2008.

    The Panama pattern is named after its resemblance to the woven Panama hat and originated from a design created by Björn Trägårdh for Svenskt Tenn in the 1930s.

    Designer

    Svenskt Tenn

    Eighty percent of Svenskt Tenn’s collection consists of products that are of our own design. Josef Frank alone left behind 3,000 sketches and about 250 textile designs. Sometimes Svenskt Tenn produces products based on models from the archive, which contains sketches and designs from both Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson.

  • Care instructions

    Pewter is a soft material that requires careful treatment. We recommend using cotton gloves when handling pewter. Objects that are not being used can be stored in a plastic or felt bag to avoid scratching.

    It is generally recommended to avoid using polish on pewter, since it can cause scratches. To remove fingerprints and other stains, rinse the pewter in warm water with a small amount of dish detergent. Dry with a soft cloth. For more advanced cleaning of pewter objects we recommend a professional restorer, for example, KA Johnsson in Stockholm.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Pewter

    The metal pewter has been used since ancient times and is extracted from the mineral cassiterite. Throughout the manufacturing process of Svenskt Tenn’s pewter objects, waste is minimised and whatever metal scrap remains is sent to recycling. Excess pewter can be melted down and used once again. The family-owned company Freitas in Portugal manufactures some of Svenskt Tenn's pewter items, and the company follows EU rules and regulations when it comes to production of pewter.

    This is how pewter objects are manufactured at Freitas

    At Freitas, several craftsmen work with the production of Svenskt Tenn's objects. The prototypes are made by hand without templates and molds. Once the prototypes are made, they manufacture specific molds for casting or spinning. Sometimes different parts need to be soldered together before the objects are engraved, polished, cleaned and finally checked and approved before they are sent to Svenskt Tenn.
