DESIGNS FROM NOWHERE - SKIPPING ROPE by Þórunn Árnadóttir
SKIP AHOY - Children size. Thorunn Árnadóttir began her project in Eskifjörður by learning basic net-making skills from local school teacher Thorhallur Thorvaldsson. After hours of careful tuition she put her new skills into practice at the net-making company Egersund Island. The company makes and repair nets many hundreds of meters long in its cavernous quayside workshops.
Thorunn used the same materials and techniques used at Egersund to create the Skip Ahoy collection. The collection has a theme of playtime and features skipping ropes, hula hoops, bags and key-chains. Few pieces in the collection also include reindeer antlers as handles, bringing together elements from the land and sea in East Iceland. The collection is produced by Egersund and local craftsemen.
