About the pattern:
Where does peace begin? Is it the feeling of freedom and mutual respect for others and for their opinions? If the road to peace begins with you and me, then we all have the opportunity to work for freedom and to be part of the peace. Along with several different artists, Livstycket decorated 12 Tibetan tents and displayed them in the Royal Park of Kunsträdgården in central Stockholm for a few days in November 2007. The tents were covered with messages of peace in 34 languages. The language patterns were transferred to fabric and the fabric has been made into towels among other things.
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.
