Strong visual brand with massive international growth
Konges Sløjd embodies a Scandinavian, stylish and sustainable children’s world, primarily consisting of babywear and children’s clothing, children’s interior design items and other items made for children.
We help to make every child’s room and home a beautiful, safe and rewarding place to live, grow and play in, using eco-friendly, pure natural materials and by focusing on aesthetic beauty and wonderful nuances. As a new mother in 2014, Emilie Konge Breindal realised she faced a challenge that she shared with all other mothers – how to find high-quality babywear and children's clothing and children’s interior design items and materials in neutral colours and which did not contain chemicals. It was the beginning of Konges Sløjd, which today has 1,500 dealers based in 82 countries. The company has experienced massive growth and success in recent years.
We look forward to hear from you.
