About the pattern:
Learning to read and write should be a human right. About 25 percent of Livstycket's participants are illiterate. Thanks to our reading project We drink tea and learn the letter e, these participants were given the opportunity to learn eto read and write. The project resulted in a textile pattern, a book - and best of all, the women broke the reading code. They are no longer illiterate!
Ever since the start in 1992, Livstycket Knowledge and Design Centre has worked with the vision of Sweden for everyone. Here, immigrant women have been able to learn Swedish, IT skills and study civics. For many, Livstycket has provided the first building blocks towards a written language. Our project is that of words and images that are converted into textile patterns, primarily in screen printing. When you shop with us, you buy a modern product in a unique design and you also contribute to making our vision become a reality.
