Warmly welcome to Drömfabriken
This year we have invited artists, activists, unionists, writers, designers. We focus on the historical, political and contemporary landscapes that condition textile production, and the relation between society and craft. We try to mend some of the broken bonds and distances between the ones who make, and the ones who consume. We learn from eachother. We try to imagine a kinder future of more selfsustaining, local production of textile and garments.
