MADE IN DENMARK
Povl initially designed and made his first rocking sheep as a gift to his niece 40 years ago. It turned out to be a life-changer, as slowly it became more and more, eventually making him leave his full-time job as a professional woodcarver and focus on making rocking toys for kids.
Inspiration for rocking sheep design came from Povl's days growing up on the farm. He felt somewhat disappointed that kids don't get the countryside experience of interacting with animals. Although they really like it – you can see it every time they go to petting farms.
Each sheep is hand made by using natural sheepskin that comes in short and long hair. Toddlers really like clutching that wool while rocking away. It is easy to wash and will last generations – Povl regularly renews this toy for grown-up kids starting their own families.
It is an amazing gift for the toddlers, as well as for their parents. It is a private space, a playground, pool for a kids, and a way to free up their hands for their parents. Surely, it is a long lasting source of fun!
Natural wood plates for those tiny, messy fingers. It is a great way to let them eat with their hands and keep things tidy. These plates (or mini food trays) come in bunny or kitty shape – pretty and playful.
MADE IN LITHUANIA
Linen is growing in popularity thanks to its unique texture and properties. But in Lithuania, it has been the joy and pride of the nation from ancient times.
There were even pagan gods associated with the flax plant (the flower used with produce linen fibres) and songs dedicated to its glory.
The experience of growing and turning it into comfy and ecological linen bedding, table covers, towels and clothing is a well-preserved art here.
We especially appreciated stonewashed and muted colours that will add a touch of magic to any bedroom. Its texture is somewhat different from cotton, and you will definitely notice a difference.
As you might know, linen is naturally antibacterial thanks to its fast drying properties and will feel comfortable in all seasons.
