Exhibition "Thanks to the finnish women" in Textile Power

Textilmuseet, Borås

|Translated by Google translation|

Finland is 100 years old!
The textile museum celebrates by paying attention to the Finnish women who came here to work in the textile industry. Thanks to them, companies like Algot and Plaintiff could expand rapidly and achieve great success in the 1950's and 60's. Still today, about ten-tenth drillers are Finnish-owned. We are so excited!
