Using fish-leather in creating magnificent handbags is one of the areas of expertise of Unnur which have been very popular to all fashionistas all over the world especially in Europe. The company Unnurwear was founded in 2006 by Icelandic fashion designer Unnur Fridriksdottir. In a short period of time, Unnur already achieved international recognition from her amazing work of art in the fashion industry.
She has won innovation awards for her entrepreneur visions and designs. In Summer 2007, Unnur’s handbags were displayed in Magma/Kvika, Iceland’s largest design exhibition.
When asked about her handbag collections, Unnur said,
“Using fish leather in designing handbags is one of my specialties in contributing to sustainable fashion but not endangering any species. The fish-leather I used comes from privately farm grown fishes. As I am passionately dedicated in providing my patrons high quality products, I always look into unique and innovative designed collections yet elegantly fashionable.”
“As my collections have been popular in Europe, I would like to come through in the Middle East region. I chose KHT International to support me as I penetrate into the ME market. I am delighted to be part of KHT International luxury portfolio – taking the journey with them in providing fashionable tremendous clientele satisfaction through my designed collections,” Unnur spoken.
Unnur literally means “the waves of the ocean” in Icelandic. Unnurwear is about global consciousness of culture, nature and comfort. Making use of fish-leather in designing handbags is the main feature of Unnur.
Unnur handbags are made for sophistication and smartness yet ecologically rational. The fish-leather has an absolute similar smell like usual leather; the frequent it is worn, the better it looks.
