During World War 2 a 30 year old man was sentenced to death for working in the resistance. The war was at its end, and after months on death row he realized that he was not going to get killed after all. What was he going to do with his life? He decided to work for something that represented joy and freedom. Marka, the untouched nature that surrounds Oslo, became his life project. He believed that Marka was of great value to the people of Oslo if it was kept just as it was. No apartment buildings, motorways, hotels or malls. Just trees, flowers, lakes, grass and fresh air. He died 100 years old, and Marka is still untouched. The gloves are knitted in a nice and soft lambswool with 20% nylon.
