Tine Winther Rysgaard and Trine Maja Kristoffersen are the designers behind the fashion label “Totem”. They recently won 2nd prize in “The Sustainable Design of the Future Contest” at Denmarks Designschool. I love their quirky collection called The Cactus, The Bear and The Mountain which is an ecological knitwear collection inspired by limit challenging youthful curiosity, taking visual cues from Indian culture.

The totem pole is an important inspiration in the construction of the collection. The composite garments together creates a stronger message, but can also be used separately in a more individual expression, while preserving the essence of the message. See their blog for more info.
