About the pattern:
This African pattern has emerged from our project in Uganda, starting in 2009 in collaboration with a local women’s cooperative to help women there become self-sufficient.Through our workshops, the women have learned to make their own patterns and to print them on fabric. Based on the Ugandan women’s drawings, depicting their own lives, Livstycket’s designers created ”Turn right at the big mango tree.” These were the directions they gave us when we came for the first workshop! We found our way and are proud to show this expression of our work together.
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.
