Karen Blixen's Christmas
Karen Blixen’s literary works rank among the most iconic of the 20th century. The world-renowned Danish author (better known by her pseudonym, Isak Dinesen) was simultaneously decadent and driven by great interest in authentic and natural phenomena – and this is exactly the inspiration for this year’s Christmas collection. With an appreciation for Blixen as a nature-lover, Ole Kortzau has once again interpreted the Baroness’s universe in new ornaments for the Christmas tree, for presents and as decoration in the home, focusing, at the same time, on the Nordic tradition of making woven Christmas hearts. As an author, Karen Blixen was known and revered for her use of language, but she also had a strong, passionate bond with nature and seasonal flowers. There are, therefore, several books on Blixen’s “floral language” and it is no wonder that those who lived around the African farm where Blixen lived for many years nicknamed her Flower.
