About the pattern:
The idea of a fabric with stripes was inspired by the exhibitions Swedish Folk Art and Sami traditional costumes in Sapmi. Most of the components of the pattern and their assembly came about during a sunny walk through Tensta in late April. We had brought our sketchbooks and pencils and admired a cherry tree in full bloom. The participants drew leaves, trees, flowers and houses. Some drew what they saw and others drew freely from their imagination.
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.
