Albert Pipes

Albert Älfvåg (Albert Pipes) was born in 1993 in Stockholm and today he lives in a small village just outside of Stockholm . He was always very creative as a child and spent a lot of time drawing and painting.

In 2012, after looking at his fathers old pipes, he became interested in the materials and the colours of the pipes, and decided to try making a pipe of his own. This first pipe had many flaws in every way, but he was trapped in this craft. He started converting the old wood shed in his back yard to a workshop, and since then he has spent his spare time in there making pipes.

Albert has travelled the last summers to visit Mimmo to learn more about briar and carving and also to select his own briar
Albert gets his inspiration from American and Danish pipe makers.
