DESIGN PRODUCTS, HANDCRAFTED WOOL, DELICACIES AND ADVENTURE TRIPS
It’s all about turning passion into profession – and about the North. With Skattakista, we offer beautiful products, select delicacies, our own handcrafted wool and adventure trips in the Faroe Islands.
Nordic design, New Nordic Cuisine, North Atlantic. Our inner compass needle always points north. The Faroe Islands in the middle of the North Atlantic are even our second home. During the winter months, storms sweep across our grass roof, or Northern Lights dance in our bay. In the summertime, we clip sheep, go fishing and watch pink-colored cotton-wool clouds sail across the horizon.
We: live and breathe North. Why did we name our brand Skattakista? Because it’s Faroese for treasure chest. Take a look and find out what we put in our skattakista. We are happy to share our passion and expertise with you.
WHO WE ARE
Francesco Mazuhn, entrepreneur.
We exclusively offer wool that comes from our friends' sheep, the animals of well acquainted village farmers and from our own sheep. During summer, the sheep graze up in the mountains. In the winter, they stroll around the villages.
Our wool gets washed, combed and made into yarn in Germany, ecological and by hand, in a sheltered workshop that's part of an anthroposophical community.
It’s possible that we are talking about the best sheepskins worldwide. The sheep of the Faroes live free all year long. Their skin is strong and packed with lanolin.
Sitting outside on one of our sheepskins, in green grass, or in front of a cozy fireplace – heaven. We provide sheepskins from our own sheep and from the village farmers’ sheep. The skins get tanned in Germany.
Raised surrounded by the roaring waves of the ever-present North Atlantic, brought up from more than 50 meters water depth.
Sugar kelp at its best. Super fresh and super tasty. Secret recipe. We provide our algae processed and ground. Protein-packed, hundred percent substitute for salt. Mix our product with i.a. mashed potatoes. You will be amazed.
