KATÝ is the brand name of various textile products designed
and made by Katrín Jóhannesdóttir. These are mostly knittet
itemes, where Katrín seeks inspiration from the icelandic
heritage, nature and saga.
The traditional Icelandic national costume is the
inspiration for the latest collection of products from KATÝ.
This collection is a graduation project from
Textiluddanelsen in Viborg, Denmark. The icelandic costume
is not a single garment, but rather a combination of units
which allow for various combinations. The items in this
collection can thus be combined in many ways.
Katrín´s hallmark are plain contours where the smallest of
details bring out the perfection in simplicity.
