Icelandic Tail-Cap (Skotthúfa)
"What next?" someone asked when we posted a lava themed laptop sleeve on social media the other day . We'll tell you what's next: A lava themed "Skotthúfa"!
If you know the Icelandic national costume (here is a book on it if you don´t) you know the "Skotthúfa"! This local producer uses locally sourced materials and creates these fun and lovely looking hats using traditional motifs with a modern twist by hand.
- It is a mix of Icelandic wool and high intensity reflective thread. The "skúfhólkur" (traditional cylinder) is made of recycled rubber.
- Designed and handmade in Iceland by Tíra Reflective Accessories
- Design is based in Icelandic tradition along with contemporary design
Unfortunately it arrived at the end of the ski season so I have to wait until next fall to really show off my unique new hat.
Love to hear that you enjoy your traditional, Icelandic Skotthúfa, Deborah! The ski slopes will be melting with this hot piece!
My daughter's and I love these so much, we gift them to family and friends as gifts. Also feels good to buy something that is authentic, and helps keep those you love just a little bit safer out there
Wonderful to hear. We're so excited to stock this cap. Enjoy :)
I’ve had my Tíra Tail Cap for a few years and love it! Perfect for cold and dark Montreal winters. Allows me to stay safe and warm, in style!
Awesome. It's always a challenge to stay stylish while warm.
