Takk means thank you in Icelandic. For Dröfn Sigurðardóttir and Olla Gunnlaugsdóttir, the two founders of the Reykjavík-based label TAKK Home, there are many reasons to be grateful for. One of the most important one is to have a home in which one feels safe and full of happy moments. In 2016 they founded TAKK Home, a line of quality products for the home, with focus on simplicity, function, aesthetics and respect for the environment. Olla and Dröfn believe that our home, where we surround ourselves with the people we love and the memories we share, deserves products that reflect our personality and lifestyle. Their selection of textiles delivers aesthetic accents to bathrooms, kitchens, and living areas.
TAKK Home was founded with focus on simplicity, function, aesthetics and respect for the environment. The source of the company's inspiration is the power of Icelandic nature, where summers are short and winters are long, as well as traditional Scandinavian design. Other influences are different cultures that they have come across in their travels around the world.
The first product line consisted of Turkish towels named Pesthemal or Haman. Turkish towels have been a big part of the Turkish culture for centuries, but they have the characteristics of being particularly moisturizing, compact and dry quickly. The towels are designed by TAKK Home and manufactured in Turkey by traditional textiles. They are made of 100% Turkish cotton, with hand-knotted pine. The Turkish towels are ideal for traveling, the gym, the swimming pool, the beach or at home instead of the traditional towels. They can also come in handy as a scarf or a baby blanket. In the meantime TAKK has added a range of other products, like kitchen towels, bed covers and face cloths.
