Lately I have noticed a certain pattern in patterns (trying to be clever…):
Hundkex means dog biscuit in Swedish but is also the name of a flower (some people call it hundloka) that in English is called cow parsley. It used to be one of my favourite flowers to pick around the summer house when I was a child. The flower shouldn’t be confused though with the bigger Giant hogweed (jätteloka in Swedish) that is very poisonous.
Ikea used to have a cow parsley textile but I can’t find it on their website any longer. However, my blog friend Saltis bought it last year to cover some glass doors in their bookshelves.
Isn’t it funny that a flower that most people would call a weed, has become such a popular pattern?
