Thank you to H.M. The Queen for many years of creative collaboration

H.M. Queen Margrethe II’s longstanding appreciation of weaving was established in her conversation with Bjørn Nørgaard about tapestries for Christiansborg Palace, for which Georg Jensen Damask was entrusted to weave tapestries and textiles for The Great Hall. As a company, it is a great honour to be involved in the creation of Danish cultural history, and this has most certainly been the case during H.M. Queen Margrethe II's reign.

Over the years, Georg Jensen Damask has had the great honour of working closely with H.M. Queen Margrethe II. Among other things, the Queen sketched the crown on Kronedugen, woven by Georg Jensen Damask in 1992 for use at the royal couple's silver wedding celebrations. In 2004, it was also H.M. The Queen who designed the monogram for the tablecloth that adorned the tables at the crown prince couple's wedding.


Georg Jensen Damask's relationship with the Royal House dates back to 1952, when Queen Ingrid commissioned the very first damask tablecloth, H.C. Andersen. In 2000, we were awarded the Royal Warrant.
