We are proud to announce that starting this winter, our Heima er Best Keyring will be available to purchase on board every Icelandair plane in the sky.
Anthony shot Kex´s annual holiday menu called Kexmas...Decided to put a brighter spin on it this year...no trees, no garland, just lots of arms.
Our very own Ýr putting up our special Andanza wallpaper in the entrance. So excited to share the progress with everyone soon...

We'll be in the Christmas Market all weekend at the Íshús Holiday Market- Come on by!
We love doing custom one-off pieces for hotels & bars, especially for our friends at Kex in Iceland. We've done aprons, lamps & lots of other weird stuff for them, so when they asked us to make juice box & custom beer tap covers, we of course said yes.
Here's to staying hydrated!
Spike Jonez created the most insane perfume ad for KENZO World & we love it.
The last few months we have been working on designing & crafting custom selvedge cotton duck aprons for our friends Canopy by Hilton. The first location for the boutique hotel is in Reykjavík so when they reached out to us to create aprons for their cafe, bistro and restaurant bar, we said yes of course.
The new apron is made from the same selvedge cotton duck that we use for all our aprons from Carhartt but for this one, we decided to change it up & create an apron that had cross-back straps as well as an updated cut that fits the burly and the dainty. Pockets are cut and sewn for bar blades & frothing spoons.
As always, we finished the pieces by using vegetable tanned leather & branded R.T.Co without it taking away from the midnite blue tone.
The hotel opened last week in the ever-changing downtown & will definitely bring new life into the neighborhood. Go check them out if you are in Reykjavík!
Over the past 5 years, Anthony has been collecting flora and fauna on his travels in California & Iceland and then creating copper pressed glass frames to showcase the beautiful changes throughout the seasons. He released a few in the series last Christmas which sold out quickly but now a larger collection will be available soon in the shop & also on his website anthonybacigalupo.com
At the moment, 5 selected pieces are being exhibited in the Icelandic forest in Hafnarfjörður, but will soon be available online to purchase as well as at a following exhibition in Reykjavík this fall. Message us if you'd like one before they sell out again.
