Icelandic Design's founder, Gerdur Krisjansdotter, is a native of Iceland, who learned to knit and embroider as a child. Her first venture into the clothing business was in the early 1980's when she began designing traditional Nordic style sweaters with her mother and importing her women’s Icelandic clothing to her new home in Colorado. The high quality, hand embroidered Nordic style sweaters found an appreciative market in the States, and Icelandic Design was born. More than 25 years later, Gerdur is still at the helm of Icelandic Design, insuring the same high quality construction and use of fine materials go into her stylish women’s Nordic sweaters, just as she learned from her grandmother and mother as a little girl. Moose Mountain Trading Company has a long history of representing Icelandic Design's varied collection of sweaters, jackets, outerwear and including accessories hand knit in Nepal and Peru.
With Icelandic Designs women’s clothing line, customers can have style, comfort, and quality at a budget friendly price. The Nordic sweaters are and jackets are made with fine wool that ensures each piece is warm and durable. Luxurious details like silk appliqué and full lining add to the style and comfort of Icelandic Designs’ women’s clothing.
In addition to great style and quality materials, Icelandic Designs takes care in the production of their women’s sweaters, clothing, and accessories. The Nordic style sweaters and women’s winter accessories are hand knitted by skilled craftsmen. Hand knitting allows for a wide spectrum of design variations for more unique styles.
Along with their women’s Nordic Design clothing, Icelandic Designs also offers winter accessories. Innovative designs, like convertible mittens that can be worn as fingerless gloves make the line practical as well as fashionable.
