COLOURS – FROM A PLACE YOU LOVE

Colours in the winter landscape in the northern part of Norway.

Which colours reminds you about a place you love? Is it one special colour, or is it many? And why do you love that place?

If you put together the answers to those questions, you will probably have a favourite colour palette.

The palette for the sweater Hjemover contains some of the colours in the winter landscape a place in the northern part of Norway, where Aud B grew up. The English word for Hjemover is homewards.

To put the colours together

In the sweater Hjemover, the white represents the snow. White is used as the main colour because it is easy to combine with other colours.

The contrast colours are alternating, but the grey and the green are more used than the other colours. They are both calm colours, which helps to stabilize the expression, and reminds about the winter green trees in north, and the stones.

The sky in north changes a lot from day to day and all day through. Sometimes the brightest blue, and sometimes greyer. The sun is low in the winter and paints the sky in all kind of pastel colours, especially in frosty weather. The yellow is an example of that.

TO NEW BEGINNINGS

to new beginnings
Every now and then we all need a fresh start. To make room for something new to grow, and to find another perspective. Maybe the first steps are hesitant. Maybe the direction not yet is clear. But there is movement, a sign of will.

After the second world war there was an urge among people to move forward and leave the past behind. In the northern part of Norway there still are some traces from that time, like this rusty old barbed wire.

This design is called Spire, which is Norwegian for sprout. It has got colours from both the nature and the rusty barbed wire. The past, the present and the future.
