Faroese tradition – DIY

A faroese tradition has always been to DIY. Whether it’s knitting, sewing, crochet or something totally different most faroese people know how to do something. Today I was at work for the Faroese Homemade company – a community with members of all ages and from everywhere around the islands.

I am proud to be faroese and happy that I have inherited the spirit and ability to do it youself! And I look forward to learn more traditional craft from my mother and grandmother. And most of qll I am happy to have found a husband that supports me with all his heart and encourages me to keep doing what I love – Being creative.
