Centre for education and development of advanced textiles.
Handarbetets Vänner (“Friends of Handicraft”) is a centre for education, production and development of advanced textiles and design.
Handarbetets Vänner (HV) is one of the oldest and premier textile craft studios in Sweden. The HV association was founded by Sophie Adlersparre in 1874. HV has been leading in a number of important advances such as female entrepreneurship, innovative textile design and advanced technical crafts.
Today Djurgården’s visitors can make a stop at HV Shop (Butik), which sells materials, tools and gifts with a focus on textile crafts.
