Dutch designer Hella Jongerius is teaming up with IKEA and Unicef for a series of animal-print wall hangings. The textiles in question are handmade by a group of women in India; each is adorned with a different animal typically found in Swedish fairy tales. Adding to the personal quality of each wall hanging, "on the back of the work is a label with the names of IKEA, Hella Jongerius and the embroidered name of the woman who made it." Choose from the goat, the fox and the rabbit.
