      'Denim Sami' (Fall 2012 marlies|dekkers) takes its inspiration from the colourful traditional dress of the Sami people, the indigenous nomadic people of the arctic region of Sweden, Norway, Finland and parts of Russia. The well-loved folkloric patters are combined with a more contemporary fabric, denim.
