The faroese designer Barbara I Gongini has received the annual Faroese Cultural Prize handed by Mrs. Rigmor Dam, Minister of Culture, Research and Education in the Faroe Islands.

The price is the highest recognition given by the Ministry of Culture, to honor a Faroese person of culture, to show gratitude for cultural accomplishments.

With inspiration from the Faroese nature, the ever-changing weather and the thrift that comes with having limited resources, she is a pioneer in the field of the sustainable clothing industry. Her experimental and process-oriented working methods showcase a wide span of complexity. Setting the focus on gender equality, the strength of the individual as well as on the playful imaginative tale of craftsmanship that breathes freedom of self-expression.
