Goddesses is a collection of Silk Scarves for Saga Kakala, Icelandic accessory brand that specialises in silk and cashmere products. Katrín Ólína's 100% silk pieces explore mythology and the idea of the Goddess from different times and cultures; Venus is featured in colorful feast of symbols. Freyja’s cats bask in the mint green Sun while Freyja’s tears turn to gold as they wash upon a pink shore in a land of plenty. Further, the primordial goddess Nótt pulls a veiled cosmic butterfly across the night sky and a powerful union of opposites bursts forth on a scarf dedicated to the ever evolving Self.
Evolving ‘I like to think of a sparkle of love and creativity that ripples continuously across the universe. We may travel far but never will we find the boundaries of the Self.’ Katrín Ólína
Freyja’s tears : ‘Norse Goddess of love and fertility was Freyja. She cried for her lost husband and her tears turned to gold as they fell on the Earth. I interpreted this myth as women's courage to turn sorrow into creativity and positive action’. Katrín Ólína

Nótt : ‘Primordial Goddess of Night. In Norse mythology she was called Nótt. At the end of the day, Nótt pulls the night across the sky and veils the heavens with a swirling dream.’ Katrín Ólína
Venus : ‘Born out of the sea foam, Venus is given to the world by the heaven and the sea. Her trinkets include a mirror, sea shells, pebbles, pearls and braids of seaweed. Where ever she goes, the ultimate goddess of love radiates beauty as magnificent as the Sun itself.’ Katrín Ólína
Freyja’s cats : ‘In Norse mythology, the ingenuous and powerful Freyja was not only the goddess of love but also the goddess of hunting and warfare. She had two great cats that pulled her chariot on her multidimensional hunting missions.’ Katrín Ólína
