The North Atlantic BASALT ÉCONOMUSÉE®

Giving a heart to stone

The artisans are charming young men who know their craft and are interested in communicating their history and knowledge. They enjoy receiving visitors, and have many ideas about developing concepts and products.

The story of the Faroese “stone culture” has yet to be told, but this Economusée—North Atlantic Basalt, will help change that.
