We are so happy to have supported a wonderful collaboration between Nudie Jeans, The Bond, Faktum and various artists and creative souls. Today marks the start of an auction of 12 unique Nudie reuse garments with embroideries interpreted by the artworks in this year’s Faktumkalender.
The 2023 Faktum wall calendar broke previous years’ sales records, so to keep the project alive, 12 completely unique garments were embroidered with motifs based on Nicklas H’s (Dusty Pink Deco) 12 monthly #baroqueikebana images, the 12 life turning points. In order to show off the different garments, Faktum sellers and various well-known Gothenburg profiles were photographed in the garments. All pictures were taken at Gathenhielmska Huset by Kim Svensson.
Why is it that some people’s stories become book titles and newspaper headlines, while others are never even spoken? Now we shed light on the reality that many close their eyes to. Everyone, all of us, carry a story. So do you. And the Faktum seller you may have avoided on the street.
“Jag bär på en historia”, which translates to “I Carry A Story”, is a small drop with twelve one of a kind re-use products based on the turning point in twelve Faktum-magazine sellers’ lives.
All profit goes directly to Faktum’s work for a society without homelessness, poverty, and exclusion.
