What is this thing called lopapeysa?

The Icelandic sheep’s unique, warm and water-repellent wool is what makes the Lopapeysa sweater great. It has been perfected by generations of Icelanders who know everything about staying warm.

You’ll find the original Lopapeysa along with a wide selection of gifts at Rammagerðin.

Saga

Iceland Giftstore / Rammagerðin was established in 1940 by Mr. Johannes Bjarnason. Prior to that, Mr. Bjarnason had started framing pictures and paintings at Laugavegur 53, with a staff of two.

The year after, he moved the business to the cellar of Hotel Hekla where he stayed for the next three years, before moving to Hafnarstraeti 17, also in downtown Reykjavik. Finally, Iceland Giftstore / Rammagerðin moved to its current location in Hafnarstraeti 19 in the year 1972.

Sagan2

As the name implies in Icelandic, the mainstay of the business in the beginning was making frames and framing pictures. It was a small business in the beginning, but grew steadily after 1949 when Iceland Giftstore / Rammagerðin hired a trained frame maker from Germany. He worked at the company for two years, teaching the staff to make and decorate frames.

Around that time, Iceland Giftstore / Rammagerðin bought specialized machinery for frame making. The business was booming at the time, but the frame making had to be on a large scale to be profitable. Ideally, the company would have needed to export its products. As time passed, the production of frames ceased, and the company focused on selling souvenirs, crafts and woolens. Those form the backbone of our business today.
