REKA is known for its simple and clean designs, with attention to detail and unique elements. Her collection EINLITT, in English meaning one colour, focuses on the shape of the garments, structuring each piece to enhance the details of the form.
Growing up with the Faroese tradition of knitting, REKA has taken this to heart and interpreted it into garments that are distinct, easily recognizable and individual in their style.
When buying a product from REKA you are assured high-quality items, knitted and created by the designer herself, primarily with the use of natural and organic materials, most of which come from the local community.

Shisa Brand creates unique Faroese handiwork ranging from hand-knitted sweaters in original designs to bags and accessories inspired by different cultures, people, local artists or by the material itself.
I feel inspired by the mystical Faroese nature with its fog and subdued colors - like a semi-transparent veil, the fog both shrouds and enhances the rugged beauty of the landscape.
I love to create a purse that stands out and has its use both in a Faroese location but also in e.g. a vibrating metropolis like Tokyo.
There is no mass production; each item created by Shisa Brand is handmade. The sweaters, cardigans, jackets, bags and clutches, and the unique accessories, are exclusive and therefore also in limited supply.

The designs are bold and bright with strong colours and eye-catching patterns, sometimes reminiscent of childhood naivety. The style is cheeky and infectious, suited for confident people wanting to display their individuality. STEINUM’s approach combines traditional knitting patterns and styles from the Faroe Islands with Ukrainian handicraft and fashion culture.
This new and unique combination results in the characteristic and quirky pieces that characterise the collections.
