Geysir designs and develops clothing from its studio in downtown Reykjavík, Iceland. Inspired by Nordic city life and the country’s history of craft and knitwear, Geysir creates pieces uniquely balanced between tradition and modernity. Geysir’s ambition is to design everyday clothing with character; pieces that tell a story through every thread. With locally sourced textiles and yarns, mixed with quality materials from around the world, each item can be perfectly woven into any wardrobe. The collection is sold in Geysir stores around Iceland.
