Fríða Björk Gylfadóttir or "Fríða" as she is called, lives in Siglufjörður with her husband and son.|

As a kid she took courses at an artschool which opened the doors to more creativity.
In 1979, then 14years old, she play a leading role in tv series made after the story "Paradise reclaimed" by Halldór Laxness. This was a great experience for Fríða and gave her a whole new vision of life.
About the same time Fríða started making hats with pretty good results. They were done with her great grandmother in mind, who owned a hatshop in Reykjavík in the 1950´s.
