About the pattern:
This pattern originated in 2009 during Livstycket's exposition at the Nordic Museum in Stockholm. The idea behind the design was to take something ordinary, something that everyone can relate to, and then adjust it in such a way that the external design still feels Swedish but the content entails much more. Inspiration for this design came from the participants' own homes and lives and from our visit at the Nordic Museum.
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.
