GRAFFITI is the work of Swedish textile designer and photographer Matilda Olsson. From a range of photos she took of the Berlin Wall, Matilda created a montage of pieces from it with inscriptions from people from all corners of the globe. The design is printed on a thick cotton fabric and we have been making wall art, acoustic panels and cushions from it; and the fabric has also been used for bed heads and totem bags etc.
The Berlin Wall was separating the Eastern side of Berlin from the Western side. It was a symbol of The Cold War until it fell in 1989. The west side of the wall was covered in graffiti. The East side was not. It was a wall with a purpose to divide, ultimately it united people from across the world. Matilda’s design is a celebration of people coming together.
If you are interested in GRAFFITI we still have some left but are selling from the last roll available worldwide.
