Ruth Lund

"The colourful Maple Leaf is the national emblem of Canada. Its vivid colours which range from pale yellow to deep orange and red bestow on the landscape of Eastern and Central Canada a blaze of glorious colour during the month of September and October." 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ruth Lund, Canadian Artist

Lund Crafts was founded in 1972 by Ruth Lund who wanted to bring new and exciting designs to the table of Canadian homes.

The very popular Lund Maple Leaf design was created on a sunny October day when Ruth picked up a leaf in her garden, a thought occurred to her, what if one could transfer these vivid coloured leaves onto textile. So she set to work and soon her work was sold in stores across Canada.

Over the years the Lund designs has found their way to homes around the world. A calendar was spotted in a hut in Africa and placemats has graced the tables of Chateau’s in the Lorie Vally and Bretagne in France.

With a powerful curiosity about other cultures and desire to meet, and to learn from others Ruth has traveled throughout the world all her adult life. She has lived and worked in eleven countries on four continents. Much of this work was as a volunteer with the Canadian organization CESO where she would spend a few weeks each year on an assignment in developing countries.

"My travels and working in these countries has resulted in many lasting friendships and some very enriching experiences" says Ruth, "and I feel blessed for this great opportunity".
