Esja was designed in collaboration with Icelandic product designer, Hanna Dís Whitehead and Scottish Textile Designer, Claire Anderson as part of their Weaving DNA project. They re-appropriate traditional Nordic and Scottish textiles, examining the ways in which these represent and shape aspects of national identity.
