During our recent trip to Scandinavia we had the pleasure of visiting the South of Sweden. We were on a photographic mission for our upcoming Mjölk Volume IV, to be published in the new year. I won’t give anything more away, but we are very excited to share this issue with you.

After an absolutely lovely day with our hosts, we spent the night at the Ystad Saltsjöbad. This break was desperately needed and set the tone for the rest of our trip. Despite arriving late in the evening we made sure to relax in the hot pools, which have a view of the sea.

Early the following morning we headed by train towards Ängelholm. Designer Jens Fager invited us for a tour of the area. You may recognize his work via Muuto, which we carry in the shop.

We arrived during a torrential downpour so our first stop at Mölle Krukmakeri in the seaside town of Mölle was a perfect start. Their little cafe had warm goulash and a cozy sunroom, where we got the chance to get acquainted and dry off.

Next stop was Höganäs Saltglaserat which has converted partially into a Saluhall, with shops, galleries and food.

We stopped by the Jens Fager studio, which is located in a massive red barn among open fields.

We were fortunate to stay at Galleri Hyttstigen B & B. The owner Elisabeth is an interesting and gracious host, who even has a Canadian connection, having lived out East for many years.

The weather was crisp and cool at the end of August, but a hot outdoor shower was a lot of fun.
