Lastest news on our fabric

On Tuesday we went to see the first perfect meters of our Familjen fabric roll off the print but oh so disappointing it was... The screens had been made in the wrong order and the print looked diabolic... Nothing else to do but to have new screens made... This is of course causing delay... We'll keep you posted.

Stay warm

Tucked away in the mid-Norwegian hinterland south-east of Trondheim is the quiet town of Roros. It is a small community. A place without pretention, renown or significance. A one-time mining community where copper from pulled out from beneath the old-fold mountains.

When a childless Director of the mine died in the 1700s, he bequeathed his wealth to the local community that had served him and the mine. He set up a foundation to supply free yarn to the community and teach them to weave.

Roros is now listed as a World Heritage Site with over 100 original dwellings preserved and maintained as they were in the mining days. Now the town has nothing to offer but tranquility, beauty and a sense of belonging. On the outskirts of the town there is still a textile plant run by father and daughter Erling and Arnstein Digernes. They still produce the finest lambswool blankets in the world with 100% pure Norwegian wool. Each blanket is inspected by hand and the wool is teased up with needles to give better thermal properties. The blanket will last you a lifetime.

This is where ISAK came to produce our Penguin blankets. Blankets that will keep you warm and carry your memories for the rest of your life.
