About the pattern:
The flight from war and insecurity often begins with one single bag. What parts of a whole life can be packed and what hs to be left behind? Many people have come to Sweden with just one bag. At Livstycket in Tensta some of these new Swedes have recounted their story about their flight by drawing their one and only bag during the winter of 2006/2007. Memories of packing for the last time and inextricably linked to the first memories of Sweden. Leaving and arriving with only one bag, in a design from Livstycket.
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.
