About

Icelandic Arts and Crafts - Made with Pride and Joy! WE SHIP WORLDWIDE!

Since we two meet we've been making things, creating, building, carpeting, printing, sewing, designing and experimenting together.

In 2006 Aevar changed his carrier and became a Carpenter for movie- and TV show sets along with rebuilding houses. Helga became a graphic designer and a shop manager for a rather big furniture and home decor store. Well, big for Iceland.

When our greedy stupid bankers took the financial system over the cliff we both lost our jobs. First Aevar and two years later Helga.

We had to rethink things. We didn't want to start again in the advertising buisness. That job is totally about satisfying you're customers opinion but not your own. We've been there - done that.

This Etsy shop of ours is a difference.

Here we design and make things WE think are cool and we want to make and our CUSTOMERS decide whether or not we are right.

Thats the beauty of Etsy.

We make demos and try to sell.

Etsys customers tell us if it sucks or shines!

Our work may look a bit like we are schizophrenic. Its all over the place. But there is a tread…

We are nature loving multi talented Icelanders with a respect for our viking ancestors and heritage.

But mostly folks who love to create.

Weather we sew it, screen print it, design it, paint it, photoshop it, digitally print it, build it or cast it with resin… its always MAID in Iceland.

Thats us. An Icelandic couple A Maid and her Man. Making their things for global attention.

With pride and joy!

And hope that there are enough of other nut cases in the world that both like and buy our works.

Although this is still a second job for both of us, we have changed one thing. We only do jobs we like. Helga is working in a cat-shelter in Reykjavík and LOVES her job. (We have 3 crumpy male cats here at home).
Aevar works on boat repairs, in a small printing shop, house repairs, as a graphic designer for a fishing export company and various other bits.

Soon to come in our shop are our handmade herbal viking soaps, Resin casted Lewis Viking age chessmen, Home Decor signs, Paintings, necklaces, clay figures and other things by Helga and then some other stuff.

Stay tuned and thank you very much for taking the time to explore our shop.

Best regards and wishes,
Helga and Aevar
