My Story

Barnabjörn: home to handmade Scandi children’s décor & eco-friendly toys, designed for families who, like us, are inspired by the natural world.

In my previous life, I spent 8 years as a Menswear Buyer with a background in Textiles and a degree in Promotion & Marketing. Creating and showcasing product has always been at the centre of what I do and so when it came to going it alone product was inevitably my starting point.

My inspiration? In short, Iceland. But not just for its natural beauty but the way I feel when I’m there: that child-like sense of wonder when you turn the corner to discover a ‘take-your-breath-away’ view; that sigh of contentment getting off the plane in Keflavik as though arriving home.

And so, after years of adventures with my husband and the arrival of our own barna björn (or ‘baby bear’ in Icelandic), Barnabjörn was born with the aim of bringing a little bit of that combined wonder and comfort into our children’s rooms and everyday spaces.

Our Values

Integrity, lasting quality & sustainability & are at our heart.

Integrity & Kindness

During my 8 years buying menswear, I learnt a few things about how I would (and wouldn't) want to run a business, and I think I can boil it down to this - be nice and be honest. To everyone. Always. We treat our customers and suppliers alike, with the same respect and kindness we would hope to receive in return. We don't negotiate so hard we damage our relationships, and we always listen to our customers' requests and feedback.

Sustainability & Longevity

To respect and preserve the landscapes that inspire our brand, we aim to reduce our impact on the environment every way we can. My founding ethos was to be 'all-natural' and one of the joys of handmade products is that I can say with confidence there are no plastics or man-made fibres in any of our products or packaging. Made to the highest quality standards, our products are designed to stand the test of time and become treasured heirlooms to be cherished for generations to come.
