Handmade with love
I run eka from a studio in our little house in the Swedish countryside where it is impossible not to feel inspired by nature and Scandinavian style.
Eka began as a hobby to keep me busy while I was snowboarding, it was a perfect passtime when traveling between competitions and trips, I sold my hats to friends and in local snowboard shops to top up my sponsorship money. This developed into something more once I retired from snowboarding and decided I needed to start something more serious and settle down (also read 'grow up' here!)
Now I can be found in the studio working on eka and taking care of my little ones, Tilda and Penny the dog.
Eka has evolved into something a lot more eclectic and ambitious since I hung up my snowboard boots, we make a lot more than just hats, whether you are looking for the perfect socks for a cosy Friday night in, aka 'Fredagsmys' in Swedish, or some cute mittens with secret messages inside, or a handmade macrame hanging to brighten up your home, I have something for you in the collection.
Don't worry if you need your item asap, we have stock in the UK ready to go of anything not 'made to order'.
Ethical accessories handmade in Auroville
I design and make my collection samples then send most of them over to Auroville in India, this autonomous township is a fascinating place, developing the landscape in sustainable and organic ways, I encourage you to check it out on Auroville.org. The talented ladies there make stock of my most popular items so that I can focus on growing the brand and also have time to give my little human Tilda too.
Our crocheters are paid a living wage along with a pension, health insurance and the opportunity to work from home if they need to. The organic cotton used in the collection is grown by BioRe.
