The Fur Guru: Eggert Johannsson, Master of Cool

I guess you have noticed by now how this Guru is really into detailed description of things, humans, animals and landscapes, everything that surrounds me. I’m quite generous with my adjectives but this time, I’m struggling a bit to describe this person. I think the best way to depict this crafter is by the things, people and places he reminds me of. Eggert is like his native Iceland; he carries with him the spirit of this place. One that shifts changes and can be elusive making it, sometimes, quite difficult to see exactly what is there. Nevertheless, he is always friendly and likes to tell stories. And why wouldn’t he if he is a book full of tales? A book about his early years working at sea, his guitar and love for music, his beloved horses, his time in London learning tailoring and his latest work in Saville Road and how later, he has pour all this knowledge and magic into fur.
