I have some neighbors across the street which are in the 80ties I think? They are collectors of almost everything that is old. Their house is filled with things you just can’t imagine! And they keep buying things so you wonder where they put it all! But never mind.
A long time ago the woman came to me and said that she had something for me. Something she bought some years ago and it should be from Denmark. But she couldn’t remember where she put it, but when she did she would bring it to me.
I had no idea what to expect. Their style wasn’t really my style, but I was also very curios what she would give me.
Yesterday she suddenly came with a bag. She had found it!! It turned out to be something very nice. It was a package where you can make your own little city with houses and cars and dolls. You just have to cut it and sew it yourself. Well that shouldn’t be a problem for me I guess!
The design is made by a Danish woman called Jette Viby. I have never heard of her before but it seems that she was a prolific designer from Denmark (1930-1999) who was very active in the 1970s and 1980s and gained recognition for fabric-based educational toys.
The fabric is in excellent condition and the colors are so bright and beautiful. I have to make this thing one day. I just don’t know when at the moment.
I would love to here if there is anybody out there, who knows the work of Jette Viby and maybe has something as well from her.
