Farmers Market - Wool Design

 

Farmers Market is an Icelandic design company, founded in 2005 by designer Bergthora Gudnadottir and musician Joel Palsson. The idea was to utilize one of the most organic materials available – the unique Icelandic wool, and other raw natural materials to create a line of multifunctional clothing and accessories, equally suited for outdoors activities and city life.  Their design inspiration draws from the Icelandic heritage where, for centuries, man and animals have cohabited in harmony challenged by harsh nature. The style has been described as revitalized Icelandic traditional design, combining Nordic design elements with chic modernity in lightweight apparel.
