The invitation picture could be little hard to understand if you’re not much into Icelandic language.

This is a very special event to be held in East Iceland on February 14th. It’s purpose is to present Helen Rödel’s working model with artisans. Some garments will be shown, we’ll have interesting speeches and there will also be a screening of the spectacular dreamomentary made by Glamour Et cetera.

The event is organized by the kind people behind MAKE by Þorpið a design and development initiative in Iceland. The main focus is on facilitating cooperation between designers and local manufacturers and the materials available in East Iceland, with the aim to create projects and products that incorporate sustainability and design value.

Their effort and success in joining design research and handwork inspires me very much!
