In the shop gallery: Sven Fristedt/Borås Cotton
Sven Fristedt is one of Swedens most talented and successful textiledesigner in all time. Plenty of timeless classics from lingering leaves and miscellaneous doodle to strict graphic lines and dots has derived from Sven´s pens, crayons and not the least his pairs of scissors. 4th Nov – 3rd Dec we are presenting a selection of his fabrics in the shop gallery on the third floor.
During the 60-,70-, and 80-ies Sven´s designs were exported allover the world and strongly contributed to Borås Cottons reputation of being one of the most exciting interiortextilecompanies in that period. In the 50-ies Sven studied at Konstfack but soon changed to Beckmans. At Beckmans his teacher Göta Trädårdh soon saw his talent. Instead of finishing the studies Göta Trägårdh sent Sven on a study trip to Italy and then straight into the job world. After working for textile- and fashion companies like ”Mab & Mya” and “Katja of Sweden”, Sven came to work for Borås Cotton from 1965.
