SWEDEN - Theme Country 2024

The theme country for the year 2024 event is Sweden. Forssa and the Finnish printed textile heritage share a common story with our Swedish neighbors. Forssa Cotton Mill was originally founded in 1847 by Axel Wahren, a Swedish-born entrepreneur. When the Forssa design atelier was established, the example came from Bors. The first Finnish designers were trained using Swedish methods, and local professionals looked to their Swedish colleagues for knowledge. Now it is time to strengthen the connection and bring it up to date with current movements in textile design.
