Presented in Faroe Islands Culture Days, join us for knitwear showcase and drop-in knitting events on April 20-21! In coordination with design events at Scandinavia House this weekend, including the panel and film screening “Design From the Faroe Islands” on Saturday, April 20 and two sessions of Knitting Workshops on Sunday, April 21, visitors will have an opportunity to meet Faroese designers to talk wool, knit, tradition, design vision and sustainable fashion. Admission is free for attendees of other weekend design events (including both the panel and film screening and the workshops) and for ASF Members, and $5 for other drop-ins.

Drop-ins will take place on Saturday from 1-5 PM and Sunday from 12-2 PM. Featured brands at this event include Einstakt, Shisa Brand, Navia, REKA, Steinum, and Durita Thomsen.


REKA is recognized for its minimalistic and refined designs, meticulous attention to detail, and distinctive elements. Her collection, EINLITT, which translates to “one color” in English, emphasizes garment shapes, enhancing each piece’s unique form.

DURITA THOMSEN by designer Durita Jógvansdóttir Thomsen is a handcrafted fashion brand based in the Faroe Islands. The small and exclusive collection features captivating knitwear, one-of-a-kind waste yarn pieces, and upcycled creations inspired by traditional Faroese craftsmanship and a commitment to sustainable living. The style is characterized by individuality and comfort.

STEINUM‘s knitwear doesn’t just wrap you up; it wraps you in stories. STEINUM’s knitwear designs feature captivating patterns, vibrant colors, and occasional touches of humor. Drawing from Faroese traditions and international influences, the designs cater to individuals seeking to make a statement in any crowd.

Crafted from local wool and lovingly handcrafted on the islands, SHISA BRAND‘s creations pay homage to centuries of knitting tradition while strutting boldly into the contemporary scene. Shisa Brand isn’t just clothing; it’s outerwear with attitude.

EINSTAKT is all about purpose-driven design. Mixing classic Nordic aesthetics with a commitment to sustainability, their slow fashion ethos ensures that every piece is built to last. Its style with substance offers a timeless look that is as enduring as eco-conscious. The result are unique designs that withstand the test of time.
