A little update on Fårikål

As some of you probably know, I’m working on a very exciting designproject by the name Fårikål. Super talented fashion designer Viktoria Aksnes and graphic design talent Stine Berg make up the dream team – and I’m the marketing wizz (hopefully!). Our mission is to amend old and nearly extinct norwegian craft techniques from the bunad and folk costume, and give them a new life through modern fashion clothing. We’re also looking into how to use norwegian wool and other resources. The technique pictured is one of many which we will be using in our collection. Hedebo is an old technique originally used on the aprons of the Fanabunad.  More updates will follow when we’ve taken some more steps!
