The Pink House Olek Built


Olek just dropped another fabulous yarn bomb over her native Poland and covered a 100 year-old house in pink crochet, from floor to ceiling, with the help of local women.

“Originally, this building, built in the early 1900s, was the home of Karl Jacob Svensk (1883-1968). During the Winter War 1939-1940, the family fled to evade bombs falling into the yard, but they didn’t have to move out permanently. In 2015, more than 21 million people were forced to leave their homes in order to flee from conflicts. The pink house, our pink house is a symbol of a bright future filled with hope; is a symbol us coming together as a community,” the artist / activist explains.
