Friday Finds: Krisuvik Iceland Rug

Krisuvik, Iceland   - 2009



Like a sad song, even the coldest and windiest of winter days can be beautiful. This scene, depicted on a hand-hooked rug, is sure to inspire thoughts of warm cocoa and spiced wine, cuddly blankets and a roaring fire.

The lonely little church and rugged landscape of Iceland come to life with a variety of different fibers, including Icelandic and repurposed wool. To learn more about this wonderful creation, and to see more expertly crafted rugs, visit Marzipan Road.
