The Scottish Storytelling Centre
“Duodji” is a collective term for various activities such as homecrafts, handicrafts and woodwork of the indigenous Saami people of northern Scandinavia, Finland and northwest Russia. It initially consisted of practical items and clothing created for individual use, but later on these were produced for trading and sale. “Duodji” is expressed differently from area to area and uses various materials, techniques and processes. The products are functional, mirroring the Saami way of life, environment and cultural traditions and are a part of the Saami identity. This is an exhibition of images created for the Northern Streams Festival of “Duodji” items.
