The Sámi handicrafts have developed over centuries of survival in the Arctic from dire need for functional and durable everyday things: clothes, textiles, accessories, tools, dishes... The forms and decorations have been dictated largely by the most readily available materials -- reindeerskin, horn, bone, and sinews. Today Duodji is a respected institution even among the modernised Sámi, and the makers of Duodji are organised in their respective countries.
All through the Sápmi among all the different Sámi tribes there is a strong love for bright colours and rich ornamentation. Nature Co Duodji respects this tradition, adding my own ideas but staying with the traditional models and materials.
All prices are in NOK and include VAT 25%. For more information on Duodji, visit Duodji.info.
