Founded in 1980, the initial vision of Icelandic Design® was to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand crafted sweaters that would celebrate a woman's creativity and independent spirit.
Its inspiration is spurred by the beauty and power of spectacular landscapes, the decorative arts throughout history, and the heritage of European textiles. Since its establishment in North America over twenty years ago, Icelandic Design has attracted a loyal following of women to whom artistry in knitwear is essential. Today, millions of women look forward to viewing the new Icelandic Design Collections as they unfold each season.
Women's roles are constantly being redefined in today's world, and Icelandic Design maintains a commitment to bring out the qualities in women that should stay clear - creativity, femininity, independence, passion and intellect.
