The Saatchi Gallery London.

Friday Dec. 4th Shanko Rugs showcased two rugs at a private event hosted by The Rolls Royce Enthusiast Club at the Saatchi Gallery.  It was the launching of the RREC yearbook “Strive for Perfection – A Celebration of Design & Luxury “.  Such an honour and a privilidge to be part of such exclusive event.  There was not much time for photos but managed to make time for the photo below when setting up the exhibition.

It was a great success and a wonderful long week-end with hubby being pampered in a 5 star hotel in centre of London

Icelandic National Horse Show at Hella

Things have been quite hectic since the Icelandic National Horse Show at Hella therfore I am a little behind with this post.

The weather was one of the worst we had experienced in mid summer here in Iceland but that did not stop us all having fun and enjoying the country most beautiful horses.  We embraced all the weather gods threw at us.  At time we had to put on all the clothing that we had with us just to stay warm then a sudden change in the weather and we had to shed most of the clothing we had already put on!  But that is Iceland for you very unreliable weatherwise.

My mini rugs “Sit on Iceland” were a welcome addition in the vendors tent and they kept their new owners warm while sitting on the holl slope watching the horses compete surounded by beautiful rugged Icelandic nature.  I could not have asked for better weather condition to test these wonderful mini rugs outside.  The Sit on Iceland came through with flying colurs and very good feed back from happy new owners.

After this successful show I am looking forward to join the team of vendors and horse lovers again in 2016.
