Ætt’s Osterfjord book

Osterfjord, Norway – once a buzzing textile region and still an active player right in the center of the rich Norwegian history of textile and leather craftsmanship – and also the region where Ætt was born. To honour this tradition, Ætt initiated and created our Osterfjord book.
