For years now we’ve been asked over and over why we don’t have one of those traditional comforters in our assortment. From Korea to Belgium, everyone seems to want one. I’ve personally always found them to be rather silly, and the material seems to always have a rather unpleasantly plastic feel.

Great gifts and how to wrap them up nicely! Wrapping gifts is something you either find miserably boring, or absolutely LOVE and think of as a fun way of showing of your creativity. OK, maybe there are some in-betweens, but I’m definitely one that loves it, even though it’s not always easy. Not to worry though, I’m here to help. Here are some of my favourite wrapping tips right now;

On Sunday we’ll be celebrating advent first. The celebration of this tradition differs a lot around the Christian world. Many places have an advent calendar that kids enjoy, in some places they give up certain foods, but in Sweden our most observed tradition is the lighting of four candles, one for each Sunday in December.

Diapers are for babies, Bags are for moms! Why do we need a specific bag designed to carry around Diapers? That’s a question I’ve always wondered about, and one that I thought a lot about during my kids diaper years. And to be honest, I don’t think we do.

Near the city of Uppsala, and about 130 kilometres from the ED headquarters in Stockholm, you can find the small rural township of Tärnsjö. Around 1200 people live here among the lakes, forests and grazing pastures, and about 50 of them are employed by the unique tannery that’s been around in the same place for nearly 150 years.

As those of you who have followed us for a while know, at Elodie Details we love head gear. Over the years we’ve made a lot of different Caps, Beanies and SunHats. But until recently we’d never made one in wool. With the cold winters of our Scandinavian heritage, it was about time, and we chose to go with 100% luxurious Merino Wool (guaranteed to be from mulesing free sheep).

Has autumn reached your parts yet? It certainly has here, and many of our little customers are now back at kindergarten or pre-school. At my kids pre-school, they go on little outings at least once per week, which I think is great. Fresh air, getting to train your little feet in rougher terrain, and just an everyday adventure that is so very rewarding. Even if it’s just to the park a block down.

Do you own a Winter Beanie from Elodie Details? Then you are in fact already wearing a tree. (!)You see, the fabric we’ve developed for this great piece is a mix of 46% Cotton, 46% Modal, and 8% Spandex (for good measure). Modal is a type of fibre made by spinning cellulose extracted from beech trees. So about half of the raw material in our Winter Beanies actually comes from a tree!

There’s probably no other product in Elodie Details’ range that I am more proud of. The journey that our Stroller Bags have made has been astounding, especially from my personal perspective. Did you know that the first 50 or so were sewn by me, at my kitchen table back in 2006? It was a camouflage version with pink or blue lining, very trendy at the time.

10 years ago today we got a call from Wang Li, one of our great merchandisers in China. She was noticeably excited and taking fast about a new material she wanted to show us. We’d told her we were looking to develop a baby blanket for our customers that was easy in maintenance but more durable than the fleece or velour materials that dominated the market back then.

Close to where I live there’s a gym. A very well-equipped gym actually. There are plenty of work out machines, classes to take in everything from mindfulness to boxersize, modern locker rooms and a great big sauna. But best of all – they offer a baby-sitting service.

Get #OrgaNICEd with our brand new Organizer. If you’re anything like us, you get a sweet release of endorphins when you’re done tiding up for the day. Why is that? Is it human nature to want, or even need, to keep your things neatly in place? It probably is.

Come meet us on the Mountain Meadows. Creating the patterns for this year’s fall collection began with defining three key concepts. Wintery Mountains, Flora & Fauna, and France (C'est vrai!).

The Story Behind the Pattern Dots of Fauna is Elodie Details’ new misty mountain dot, and we spoke with our founder and creative director Linda on how this pattern came about. What’s it like creating new patterns? Where do you start?
