Design Inspiration – Setesdal Sweater

As a knitter and lover of Norwegian sweaters, I fell in love with Nike’s limited edition Pro Oslo Glow tights as soon as I saw them.

Nike designer Ryan Noon drew inspiration for these running tights from the classic Setesdal lusekofte sweater that originated in the Otra river valley in southern Norway.

By digitally mashing up the familiar knit and hand-embroidered design elements found on Norwegian sweaters, Noon pays homage to a traditional design in a thoroughly modern and delightful way.
