Our in-house brand Saga Kakala, is a cooperation between the founder, Ingibjorg Greta Gisladottir and various artists and designers working in different media. Instead of using just one designer for Saga Kakala, Ingibjorg Grota wanted to create more variety and to explore further the creative ways of making silk scarves than she believed possible with just one designer.
The idea for the Saga Kakala’s scarves came to Ingibjorg Greta at a time she led workshops and educational programs for the creative industries at the innovation center,House of ideas. Working there, she got a change to meet and work with different fashion designers, such as Helga Bjornsson, a former creative director of the Haute Couture fashion house of Louis Feraud in Paris. Helga encouraged Ingibjorg Greta to start her own design company and in addition designed the first collection for Saga Kakala, the Kachina collection.
Ingibjorg Greta finds it fascinating to work with different designers and artists, as each and everyone of them brings their own unique and extraordinary skill to the table which results in a great variety between the different Saga Kakala’s collections.
