She creates beautiful leather accessories and clothes inspired in medieval and viking times, nature and music.

Her designs are unique and you can recognize her passion and creativity in the details of every garment Daniela makes, such as this Vegvisir bag, one of  the best Daniela’s works. This bag is made with faux leather and the Vegvisir symbol painted by hand.

Did you know about “The Vegvisir: The Symbol of Guidance and Protection”?

According to the book The Galdrabók: An Icelandic Grimoire, the meaning of this symbol is “The one who carry this sign will never lose its way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not know”.
