Ekelund's first President was a woman. It was in 1692 when Ingemars daughter Marta was born in the county of Marks; the heart of where the art of Swedish weaving originates. This was also the time of renewed enlightenment. Over time, her meticulousness and ingenuity resulted in the start-up of a significant Swedish textile business. During the early years, the raw material for all textiles was cotton and flax. This material was processed to achieve all the necessities of life. The vanity and the needs of the humanity soon added color and design to create happiness. Home production used the simplest looms, where technical improvements during time made the process easier and easier. What is called damask-weaving, using only a shaft to weave complicated pattern, was a technology developed to its fullest in the Horred area. Around 1850 we started to use the jacquard weaving method which uses patterns on punched cards to control the threads of the loom. Today we have the most modern computerized jacquard looms offering weaving in all the colors of the rainbow.
