Business Opportunities

Local fibers flax, hemp and wool are looking for new contexts

The materials we use here, are often not produced here, but far away. This is a consequence of dysfunctional production systems, and a lack of knowledge about the opportunities here in Sweden. 

Business Opportunities is an exhibition created by the Fiber Land project. It highlights various material applications of the locally produced fibers hemp, flax and wool. Applications that have all the prerequisites to become commercially viable alternatives to far-away-produced fibers such as cotton or synthetic materials.

In the exhibition, visitors can view and touch a number of material samples, and see furniture and objects made from the three fibers designed by Ebba Lindgren and Jenny Nordberg.

Fiber Land is an initiative run by the County Administrative Board in Skåne together with STPLN in Malmö and Jenny Nordberg Design Studio.

The exhibition is shown in the architectural office of Förstberg Ling.
