Sigríður Ásta Árnadóttir's Profile
I am a textile designer, forever fascinated with colour combinations and recycling. And quite a Jackdaw too, a favorite pastime of mine being rummaging through markets and thrift shops picking up anything of interest and beauty (shiny objects being a favourite!).
Hand-dyeing wool is a special interest, as I find that wool takes a deeper and more vivid colour than other fabrics. For my Kitschfridur designs, I have combined my instinct for color with my passion for recycling -wool being superbly suited for this purpose as it can be further altered than other materials by felting and dyeing.
For many years I have partaken in an artist collaboration, running a shop selling our work in a beautiful, old house in central Reykjavík, called Kirsuberjatréð (The Cherry Tree)
