Ingibjorg Hanna Large Krummi Crow Coat Hanger
Krummi means Raven in Icelandic and has much more positive connotations in Icelandic folklore than in other countries. Ravens, for instance, discovered Iceland for the Viking Hrafna-Flóki, who set two of them free to find land. The Norse god and sage Ódinn had two of the birds, called Huginn and Muninn, on his shoulders, whispering words of wisdom into his ears. Icelandic parents teach their children krummavísur, easily learned verses about krummi. The raven, is also regarded as a symbol of hope. Ravens are very attracted to shiny things, and will steal shiny objects to be used in their nests. The idea behind the bird hanger is to display your "shiny" clothes instead of hiding them away in a closet. These hangers bring a fresh approach and a unique twist to an otherwise mundane item, which allows us to turn a favorite dress or piece of jewelry into a display feature instead of hiding them away in wardrobes. Our clothes and accessories hold memories: we all have a treasured or beautiful piece of clothing that we would love to show off, perhaps a vintage piece handed down from our mothers or a dress we have spent too much money on!
