“When I purchased my winter home in Geilo a few years ago, I knew exactly what kind of objects I wanted to decorate it with, but I couldn’t find them anywhere,”Gundersen says. And so she went on to make them herself. Her interest in interior design and hobby of making things from scratch led to her establishing Kuliku, which translates as ‘cool in cow’.
The hues of the soft, beautiful hides from Norwegian goats and sheep fit perfectly with the existing interior trends in many winter homes across Scandinavia. “I love the shabby yet sophisticated interior style, and animal hides make the perfect addition to this,” says Gundersen. Hides from calves, goats and sheep are used in the collection, and no two items will ever be the same. All products, handmade in Bergen, are numbered and come with a certificate of origin.
