ÆTT: A pure Norwegian brand

ættDid you know that some of the greatest fashion brands such as e.g. Gucci, Prada were making some of their leather accessories at the Norwegian bovine tanner Borge Garveri located nearby Bergen? Well, we did not it know either until we meet Anna-Lisa Johannessen and Haavard Holmaas the founders of the new great Norwegian brand ÆTT. We discovered their first pop-up store some months ago close to Mathallen in Oslo and it was about time to write this post! Their beautiful leather bags are made from the last scraps of premium quality leather they bought from the tanner Borge when unfortunately he had to close down its workshop in 2010. Revisiting classic items from outdoors men, sailors, mountaineers and workers, ÆTT offers a humble, contemporary homage to the timeless quality, craft and tradition of resilience. We really love the purity of the lines tapped into the Norwegian roots.
