    The Swedish tradition of holding a Midsummer Party is a lovely way of bringing family and friends, young and old together. In Mid-June, school is out and nature has burst into life.

    Taking good care of our clothes is one of the best things we can all do for the environment. Always follow the washing instructions, mend whatever can be repaired and pass any garment a child has outgrown on to a new owner. You can also transform any worn-out garment into something new, which is called upcycling or creative reuse. A top can be upcycled into a gym bag and mittens into sweatbands. Just use your imagination. GYM BAG FROM A TANK TOP An old top can be upcycled into a really great gym bag. Why not personalize your gym bag with fun cords and appliqué details?

Together the designers consider different color schemes and then decide which ones will be on the prints for the garments. When this has been done, an original is sent to the supplier for a print trial on fabric. Testing is the next step. The supplier sends garments in accordance with the instructions on the garment sketch and measurement list, and we test them at the head office. The design assistant and pattern maker check the fit and make sure …
