Josefin Gäfvert is a weaving artist from Gotland, currantly based in Stockholm.
    In her exhibition “Access” at Kulturhuset 1976 she investigated the potential role of the handwoven rug in modern society. What happens in a room that is only filled with handwoven rugs? Will some things get lost if the handwoven object is replaced by massproduced textiles?
    In this giftshop you can buy portraits of kitchen towels in different techniques. When creating them Josefin thought about what is possible and worth to handweave for a gift shop. Even if weaving may feel intense and fast for the weaver, in reality it takes a lot of time and effort. What is important for Josefin is to keep the honesty in her work, and so she ended up weaving these small woolly kitchen towels. All of them are like short stories of love, excitement and care.
