Glamour | A Final Word

LS03

Before we go we would like to say that we are incredibly grateful for the lecture series that was organised for DesignMarch.

Oh, indeed.

Today’s destination was the fascinating scarf factory on Laugavegur 6, where designer project Vík Prjónsdóttir manufactures knitted scarfs in a unique fashion.
