At HönnunarMars 2021, Kormákur & Skjöldur will present new developments of production and product development in the “Icelandic Tweed” project.
The project has been very successful and its progress has been a great inspiration to the company to introduce new possibilities in the processing of Icelandic wool in Tweed for various uses.
Since Kormákur & Skjöldur introduced the material at HönnunarMars 2020, the company has produced clothing and accessories from the Icelandic Tweed and the material has also attracted attention as a great option for upholstery. Epal has introduced both the Kjarval chair and a sofa from Erik Jörgensen clad with the Tweed and many have also taken advantage of being able to buy the Tweed in meterages to give older furniture new life. Designers and architects have embraced the material and used it in their projects.
In Harpan, Kormákur & Skjöldur will have an area where the company showcases clothing, as well as a new and exciting product line, new patterns and new materials in the Icelandic Tweed. The company will also showcase a new furniture line designed by Arctic Plank where Tweed is used against recycled wood. Arctic Plank’s ideology is based on environmental awareness and sustainability and is well reflected in Kormákur & Skjaldar’s ideology of Icelandic Tweed
At Epal, Kormákur & Skjöldur show a new and exciting accessory line that includes computer bags, tablet cases, gloves and more made from the Icelandic Tweed.
Icelandic Tweed from Icelandic wool is a product that has not been produced in Iceland since the sixties. Its development has taken the company five years to complete.
At HönnunarMars, Kormákur & Skjöldur will also present a new and exciting collaborative project with Nordic Angan. In recent months, the companies have jointly developed a line of beard oils that will be shown at Epal and Harpa for the first time. Nordic Angan is a fragrance bank of Icelandic herbs. They travel all over the country, from the sea to the countryside, and collect plants to distill essential oils from them. Exactly those oils are the core of the line that the companies have developed together that combines the best of the fragrance of Icelandic nature and the world of Kormákur & Skjöldur.
