  2. Time for a new project - Icelandic Lopapeysa

    The Lopapeysa originates in Iceland in early or mid-20th century, at a time when imports had displaced older and more traditional Icelandic clothing and people began to search for new ways to utilise the plentiful native wool. The design has since become a national icon for Icelandic cultural identity.
