From Napapiiri Jeans site:
Our roots are located at one of the last real frontiers in Scandinavia – Lapland. This is a place where are no traffic lights,
no underground transportation or worries about stock markets. This is a place where reindeers walk free, where water
is clearer than glass and where people have space to breathe.

These colourful housewares made by Norwegian company Catherineholm’s brighten up every kitchen and are permanent targets of collectors.
Lovely items with the ‘Lotus’ pattern created by Grete Prytz, a second wife of infamous Norvegian Designer [Arne Korsmo](https://www.meamnet.polimi.it/archive/085/085m1.html). [Grete Prytz Kittelsen](https://www.changbiorck.com/enamel.htm) was born 1917 in Oslo, Norway. Her designs have won many prestigious awards. She was one of most influential designers in Scandinavia in Mid-Century. In 2003, when she was already 86, Grete visited China, where she saw traditional Chinese enamel factory still in operation and which inspired her to start designing again. Chang & Biörck got exclusive rights to reproduce some of her design, among which a bowl and a plate, that she designed using similar colors as her original 1950s works. Cathrineholm of Norway started enamel production in 1907.
