A growing women’s movement demands that husband and wife share the household work and asks for maternity leave to be extended with paternity leave. It becomes a reality in 1974...
All SÄLLSKAP dinnerware’s designed for a more beautiful and practical everyday life and works just as great whoever you are.
...when there’s a stately campaign for paternity leave. That same year ABBA wins the Eurovision song contest with Waterloo.
If you want to do what many Swedes did in the 70’s and mime to ABBA:s hits in front of the mirror, you can always try looking into the SÄLLSKAP one.
