    This is how it began! In the words of Sissi Kewenter Founder and Designer of Skhoop,

    "It all started with -20°C, a happy dog, an old jacket, and a sewing machine. 

    The morning was cold.  My coffee was cold.  And I was a tad tired and frozen.  But Labbe, my dog, was happy.  As always.  I was happy too, but I didn't really feel like taking that long morning walk in -20°C. 

    I was literally tired of freezing my butt off! But you do things for those you love, so we went for that walk around Åre, a small mountain village in northern Sweden where we live.  I passed the guys who work with the ski lift.  I said hi to the street workers who shovel tons of snow in the main square.  I was freezing! 

    We slid down the hill towards the bakery with its seductive smell of freshly baked bread.  Inside, with a warm cup of coffee, I realized that there was something missing in my wardrobe.  Why did I wear a big down parka and a pair of jeans with long underwear? I needed something that could keep my bum and my legs warm. 

    After breakfast, I ran home with an idea in my head.  I found my old down parka in the basement, grabbed a pair of scissors, sat at my old sewing machine, and went to work.

    A few hours later I was done.  The first down skirt had seen the light of day! Not the most sophisticated design- or the best fit- but it did the job.  It was functional, it kept me warm.

    The next morning, I dragged my dog out very early and laughed my way through the village, my butt warm the entire way!"
