Hopkalop is short for “hop-kalop-kahy”. It means ‘art’ in the dialect  our family. It was the word our granmother, or Oma, as we call her, used many years ago to describe the mess we, children, were making when we were being creative. We grew up in an environment where trying new ideas, experimenting and being inventive was encouraged, even if we made a little mess, a little hopkalopkahy.

The name we chose represents what we learned with our parents and grandparents: all sorts of arts and crafts. Woodwork, painting, cooking, crochet, knitting, sewing, embroidering, you name it, we love them all. And because we want to keep learning, we are making some Hopkalop.
