Today was the first day in L.A. that felt like winter is on the way--
Being a big baby, and dreading the chill I decided to ponder new ways to keep toasty. I discovered the creative new cozy designs of Vik Prjondottir.
the name translates as “Vik, the daughter of knitting”
My favorite is the two person blanket --made to honor those super cold nights in the Nordic, when you had to invite your overnight guest to sleep with you just to beat frostbite.
“The wool industry in Iceland has a long tradition of hand knitting and pattern making, but a very stagnated image,” adds Birgisson. “The majority of wool clothes are for tourists – there are many replicas of traditional local clothing sold as souvenirs but there is a definite lack of collaboration between young designers and the wool industry.”
The Beard Caps are based on the traditional balaclavas worn by farmers during Iceland’s heavy snowstorms, while the Twosome Blanket acknowledges the custom of sharing bedding to keep warm. Other products reference Iceland’s dramatic and inhospitable environment. The Regional blanket, for instance, is decorated with the image of one of Iceland’s largest glaciers.
