Jens-Kjeld in his workshop.

Jens-Kjeld is Danish and moved to the Faroe Islands in 1970. He is ”the man” with the great knowledge about birds – both living and dead. Also he stuffs birds, found and delivered by other people. He has an enormous interest in everything, which goes on in nature, and the result of his individuality in research can be seen in the several articles under ”Articles” on this webpage. Pay attention to the “Reference list” as well.
Furthermore he has written more than 400 other Faroese articles to the newspaper Dimmalætting. Read some of them here

Marita is Faroese. She is the creator of the pins, key rings, magnets and the other small items, which you can see under the ”Online shop” on the webpage. She gets her inspiration from nature and what’s in it, and draws all the sketches herself. Furthermore she makes pins and other items for mostly local sport clubs, where she as a basis mainly uses their own emblems.
She has a big influence in the enormous and world wide correspondence, which the couple have in their home.
