Join the Fæbrik!

Making clothes fun.

Making ‘making’ clothes accessible.

These are the foundations on which Fæbrik is built – an Oslo-based sewing collective creating innovative clothes designs sharing their techniques for others to follow, and raising awareness on the throwaway culture so closely intertwined with the fashion industry.

Meet the Norwegian start-up leading a counter-culture clothing revolution, hear their story, and why the HÅG Capisco is the perfect chair for their collaborative city centre studio.

The story of Fæbrik

Fæbrik is the creation of four friends, Jenny Skavlan, Ingrid Bergtun, Mari Norden, and Ingrid Vik Lysne – inspiring and creative individuals with a shared passion for sewing.

Fæbrik is all about teaching people to sew clothes, mostly out of old textiles, following their own designed patterns. On top of this, they teach people how to hack and change the design and make it fit perfectly so that people can make their unique dream garments with good conscience.

Their workspace

Fæbrik is based in an old gunpowder factory located downtown in Oslo. It’s connected to Kroloftet - a collective of designers and artists working with metal, wood, ceramics, and textile. This allows a close collaboration and allows them to be part of a creative atmosphere, learning from the other artists and experimenting with textile in combination with the other materials.

The HÅG Capisco

Sewing is very physical, making it a task that requires a dynamic chair. With the HÅG Capisco, Fæbrik have a chair offering comfort and support in all the different settings they need it for; The sewing machine, working on the computer and sitting high for designing and cutting fabrics.

Naturally, the upholstery was key for a company all about fabrics. They chose a range of locally produced wools from Gudbrandsdalens Uldvarefabrik, in 5 different colours to match their vibrant and playful workspace!
