k. Sissal Kj. kristiansen, owner and designer of Shisa brand
With a heartfelt love for knitting and protecting the environment, my designs are a clash of deep-rooted Faroese culture and modern innovation. The Faroese have a long history of hand-knitting, and it is very common for girls to learn how to hand-knit at an early age, and I was no exception. Alongside the Faroese influences, I am also hugely inspired by Japanese aesthetics. It is the simplicity, clean lines, attention to detail, and the less is more feeling you get when you observe the Japanese style that I find most captivating.
