Växbo Lin – Made in Sweden and the dream of a factory
Nearly on my way out, I found an area with products from Scandinavia at Nordstil Fair in Hamburg.
I don´t now why, but an exhibition stand with towels and table linen drew me magically. The sentence : „Only with the hands one sees well“ is going through my mind and I have to touch the linen. The wide range of table linen, table napkins and towels are shown in classic pattern and modern as well. The all have a great feel of the surface to it and its hard to make a decision wich one I like best.
The story of Hanna & Jacob as the owner of Växbo Linen started officially 16 years ago. Through this time the couple lived in Stockholm and bought a factory, basically over night. After they moved with their first born child to the area of Växbo, another journey started for Hanna & Jacob. Both of them quit their jobs in Stockholm and life changed completely.
The dream to own this particular manufacture was born way before.
Hanna and Jacob met when they were 15 years old, close to the factory of Växbo. To see Jacob over the next summer, Hanna applied for a job at Växbo and worked at a tour guide during the summer break. This is were the real story starts – and believe me its a beautiful one. A Story about, two people who go for their dreams, about passion and courage.
