These three textile wall hangings named Pelle, Mikkel and Gullspira are inspired by Swedish fairy tales and are a part of a project by UNICEF and IKEA.

The goat, fox and rabbit textiles are designed by Dutch designer Hella Jongerius and made by women in India. The result is a label embroidered with the IKEA, Hella Jongerius and the name of the woman who made it.

According to Jongerius' website, the IKEA-UNICEF project helps women of India to start small sewing businesses and enable their children to go to school.
