Welcome to the exhibition ‘The Future is Local’,curated by VERK and A NEW SWEDEN. The exhibition is about local production and takes a transparent and inspiring look at the process of VERK’s and A NEW SWEDEN’s completely sustainable products—from raw materials to finished products.

“We want to share our knowledge about manufacturing 100% Swedish-produced products and to show that sustainable production is actually possible. Total transparency benefits everyone,”says Simon Anund, founder of VERK.

Both VERK and A NEW SWEDEN exclusively use Swedish materials, which are transformed into products of the highest quality through local production.

“We want to show the benefits of local production.Not only does it provide increased transparency and traceability, but it substantially reduces the carbon footprint, too. The supply chain of our garments is less than a fifth of the length of the typical supply process,” says Lisa Bergstrand, founder of A NEW SWEDEN.

The exhibition was shown for the first time inFebruary 2022 during Stockholm Design Week, in collaboration with Stockholms Auktionsverk. It highlights the players involved, the producers of the raw materials: wool, leather, glass, wood and steel, as well as the craftspeople and manufacturers of the actual products.

Both VERK and A NEW SWEDEN are proud to exhibit at Form Design Center in Malmö.

With The Future is Local, VERK and A NEW SWEDEN aim to both educate and inspire, at the same time as they hope to make the concept of“Made in Sweden” to again stand for something meaningful.
