Story of Women is a project on textile and spiritual journey of women of various ages, nationalities, religious background, and life circumstances. The key to create symbols that form a large embroidered textile wall were two key questions: “What makes you happy?; What is important for you?”. The eight-month project was created under the patronage of the design and art group Oloop and the UP Society. The project includes stories and hand-made works of women from the Jesenice House of Luck and applicants for the international protection.
The participating female narrators, embroiderers, designers, and producers: Aleksandra, Bojana, Danica, Fadia, Faila, Fatima, Hasna, Janja, Jasminka, Katja, Krista, Letkidan, Masoumeh, Meleča, Mila, Mirza, Nada, Nasiha, Noor, Saba, Sema, Suada, Stoja, Tjaša
The project was supported by U.S. Embassy Ljubljana, JSKD RS, Institution Oloop and Society UP Jesenice.
