SKIP AHOY! by THORUNN ARNADOTTIR

"Working alongside the Egersund team, I used the same materials and techniques but on much smaller scale to create the Skip Ahoy collection. The collection has a theme of ‘playtime’ and features skipping ropes, hula hoops, bags and key-chains made from the hard wearing net material in a variety of colours. Some pieces in the collection include reindeer antlers and bones as handles, bringing together elements from the land and sea in East Iceland. The collection is produced by Egersund in collaboration with local craftsmen."

I love the playfulness of this skipping rope, and how it incorporates natural materials like bone and antlers. The colours and technique of the rope is unique and fun.
