Updated September 2011 We have remade these awesome, simple bags for fall! This time around, I used a gorgeous new collection of upholstery weight cotton called Outside Oslo. These bold, stylish prints are sophisticated without being serious and come in a rich palette of colors perfect for fall. I added some sturdy contrasting cotton webbing handles for a pop of color, and I love the way they came out!

Viking Ship Museum, Oslo, Norway In the Vikingskiphuset there are three Viking burial vessels, the “Gokstad,” “Tune” and “Oseberg.” These date from 800AD to 900AD and were found near the Oslo Fjord some time during the 19th century. The Oseberg is a 64-foot long vessel with a dragon-shaped keel that contained royal remains. An outstanding collection of objects used on the boats is also on display. These objects were believed to ensure a happy afterlife to those who died.
For the first time ever the collection as a whole will be exhibited at gallery FORMAT in Oslo (rådhusgt. 24). The exhibition is called Norwegian Wood Art and is a nice selection of Norwegian art, craft and design objects made of wood. There will be among other things be 365 spoons mounted on the wall for everyone to examine.
Oslo-based art and design studio Kneip specializes in unique projects and handmade objects rooted in craftsmanship and nature. Inspired by the phenomena of weather, the designers created a series of sculptures that explores the great forces of nature. ‘Weathered‘ stands at the crossway of design and art. A collection of five objects, it consists of features that in different ways trace the components of weather – degradation, humidity, wind and movement.
