Amdal, Heidal, Man’s Suit Melange, Heddal Stitched
At Norwegian Presence, GU presents an updated and expanded colour palette for two of the standout fabrics in its textile collection: the simple, soft and durable Amdal (70% pure new wool, 30% viscose) and Heidal (80% new wool, 10% viscose, 10% polyamide), a solid and minimalist textile inspired by the traditional garment of the Gudbrandsdalens valley dwellers.
The company also presents two new prototypes designed by in-house designer Ragnhild Nordhagen: Man’s Suit Melange (75% pure new wool, 20% viscose, 5% polyamide) and Heddal Stitched (90% pure new wool, 10% polyamide), an industrially woven textile designed to recreate the look and feel of a handcrafted fabric.

The family-owned mill in Lillehammer, Norway, specialises in the design and production of high-end wool-based upholstery fabrics. Proudly bearing the motto ‘Wool for Generations’, GU keeps its environmentally-friendly production process entirely in-house, from raw material to finished product.
