Norðan by Barbara i Gongini

From Barbara I Gongini‘s creative well an echo from the Northern Hemisphere has sprung. A new brand evolves from the nourished grounds, carrying the name Norðan.”

“Aligned with the clean and untouched nature, Norðan focuses on a CSR-friendly take on the product. The foundation of Norðan is aligned with the imaginary journey to the north and is therefore based around basalt rocks, mist, soil, seawater, moss, rust and driftwood, which is washed ashore. The choice of materials is a reflection of the sent of the north. A tactile exposure of a variety of surfaces. Rough linen, heavy cotton, silk, wool, leather and blends of recycled materials from various fibers are joined in a synchronized symbiosis.”

“Emanating from the earthly color range, the color palette is held in a northern spectrum that mimics nature in all its shades. From the wide fields of heather, over to the muddy puddles to the pitch-black basalt rocks. A seasonal color is regularly added.”
