SHIT® MARIUS® SERIES - Norwegian traditional design By SHIT®
For some odd reason we picked up the Norwegian ultra traditional wool sweater design MARIUS and played around with it on decks, wheels and garments. And upon showing friends and family the sketches some got tears in their eyes because it was so unexpected yet so lovely.
Showing the first prototype of our SHIT MARIUS Zip Hood made them all cry of excitement and joy.
This might sound as a gag – but it is 100% true.
They all wanted to pre order right away… So we just had to realize it.
Mixing our urban street skate image with the most known Norwegian piece of design internationally will be loved and hated.
-WE LOVE IT!
This icon pattern deck comes in three sizes: 7,6, 7,8 and 8. (Pic: Bitmap/Kim Laland)
The design is named after the two brothers slalom athletes Stein and Marius Eriksen. Stein won the Olympics Gold medal during the Olympics in Oslo in 1952 and Marius was the model for the knitting recipe.
The unique and world famous MARIUS® designs are of Unn Soyland Dahle’s origin and are copyright and patented.
Unn achieved the Royal Medal of Merit in Gold in 2002 for her lifelong Pioneer work renewing Norwegian hand knitting traditions and designs in wool as well as making the Norwegian hand knit-culture famous abroad.
She also was the first to export "Norwegian sweaters", making it a famous term. And that was back in the 50’s!!!
A pretty neat T-shirt, and not what you might expected!?? (Pic: BITMAP/Kim Laland)
In cooperation with the owners of MARIUS® design patent we came up with the traditional color design on decks, wheels and garments as well as some new hot color combos that we think are up to date or even beyond future. It is too hot to handle for some of you.
Turquousie, Traditional blue or purple? 7,6, 7,8 or 8? What's your flavour? (Pic: BITMAP/Kim Laland)
Decks come in all three sizes in all three color designs.
The Marius wool sweater has been officially crowned NORWEGIAN NATIONAL SWEATER.
Does this mean we have the official NORWEGIAN NATIONAL SKATEBOARD? ;)
