Guðrun & Guðrun (FO)
The Faroese brand Guðrun & Guðrun comprises of designer Guðrun Ludvig and her business partner Guðrun Rógvadóttir. Guðrun Ludvig, with her delicate taste and distinct feel for material and colour, explores the intersection between traditional and new ways of hand knitting.
In their Traditional line, they have reinvented the traditional Faroese fisherman's sweater and lifted it into the world of contemporary fashion. In a climate of cheaply-produced must-have items, Guðrun & Guðrun's sweaters are long-lasting alternatives that do not compromise on style. Made from Faroese wool that has often been neglected, they are hand knitted by equitably employed women in different corners of the world. The patterns are reminiscent of our Faroese grandfather's jumpers, and certainly strike a chord with those craving a more meaningful consumer culture.
Guðrun Ludvig lives and works in Torshavn, Faroe Islands.
