Damask is back in fashion and the Danish designer Evalou has designed a collection of  tablecloths, table runners, napkins and dish cloths in stylish damask. You can chose between a delicate light blue and the beautyful light green colour that Karen Blixen chose for her kitchen. The damask is made in Portugal and the print is inspired by the menu of Babette’s Feast featuring turtles and quails.

If you wish to contribute to the safeguarding of the heritage of Karen Blixen we invite you to give a one off donation of any amount in the shop or as an online donation to the Rungstedlund Foundation. Donations of DKK 200,- or more are highly appreciated because the Museum thus becomes eligible to a special tax reduction. When you donate DKK 200,- or more the Museum will offer you a picture of Karen Blixen with one of her philosofical insights: “Our life is a mosaic work that the Creator fills piece by piece.”

The Rungstedlund Foundation runs the Museum and the Bird Sanctuary. Karen Blixen established the Rungstedled Foundation in 1958 with the aim of ensuring the establisment of a bird sanctuary on the estate and that the buildings would be used for a cultural purpose.
