About the pattern:
Before the language has taken root, it is sometimes good to let your mind be at ease and let your hands methodically work with a fabric over calm, tentative and, in time, more effortless conversation. Many of our participants have embroidered in their home countries and they have the technique and the craftsmanship, as well as their own patterns and recollections. Many of the pieces of work are so beautiful that we want to keep them forever; in a photograph or as a tray so that many have the opportunity to experience them. You could say that our participants embroider themselves into Sweden, because we can all speak with our hands.
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.
