My name is Flutura. I'm 33 years old and I come from Albania. I couldn’t find a suitable job after graduating from the Faculty of History and Philology at the University of Tirana. My husband and I had just got married at the time. We thought that Sweden would be the ideal place for our future together, so we packed two bags and travelled there.
I worked at an Indian restaurant in Sweden for a while. I liked the place. The décor was mostly handmade, from the tablecloths to the curtains. The restaurant owners had brought their country's handicrafts with them to Sweden. I wanted to do that too – show the world what Albania has to offer. I discovered my passion for embroidery.
