ICE, WATER, FIRE AND GEYSERS: ONCE AGAIN THE NEW KITS DESIGNED BY ERREÀ FOR THE ICELAND FOOTBALL TEAM HAVE BEEN INSPIRED BY NATURE'S ELEMENTS!
A land covered in ice with an immense wealth of water and a heart of fire thanks to the huge number of volcanoes and geysers. All of this can be found harmonized in the new kits which Erreà Sport has designed for KSÍ – the Football Association of Iceland and its first ever history making appearance in the FIFA World Cup.
The fire which lights and warms the heart of this land and its people is the starting element for unveiling the new kit. Due to its effect, the ice, symbolically represented by the white on the V-necked collar and along the shoulders, slowly melts, mixing with the lava along the sleeves characterized by almost dot-like graphics where red and blue blend.
Then blue representing the water that has melted thanks to the heat, is the distinctive color of the main body and the background of the home strip with its simple and clean lines but perfect down to the smallest detail.
The close fit is emphasized by the combination of two fabrics. The first, positioned in the central part of the jersey, is soft, breathable and extremely comfortable and is embellished and combined with a second yarn, a special mesh placed along the sides of the jersey.
To emphasize the strong national identity, the pride and the intense sense of community that distinguish the Icelandic people, there are two iconic elements included in the new kit: the motto already present for the 2016 European Championships "FYRIR ÍSLAND" ("For Iceland") positioned inside the neck and the national flag on the back of the jersey.
The new KSÍ kits, like all Erreà garments, are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified, prestigious certification, obtained by the company in 2007 as the leading European company in the teamwear sector, guarantees that all Erreà fabrics and products are neither toxic nor harmful to health, in compliance with the most important international regulations and in observance of the highest and most recognized quality and safety standards.
