Our Story

The Nordic Collection is a range of irresistibly cute fabric Gnomes & other beautiful Nordic decor. Gnomes have been part of Nordic Folklore for centuries. Being Danish, I was inspired to create The Nordic Collection out of love for my Scandinavian heritage, wanting to share the magic of the North with my friends here in beautiful South Africa.

Folklore explains how Gnomes were known for looking after people’s homes and animals if cared for. All that the Gnomes expected in return was a bowl of porridge at Christmas time. When people were not good to them they were known for playing tricks on people. And so the story goes…

We have a great deal of fun designing and making our Gnomes. Each creation has its own unique character, which is why it makes it so much fun to do what we do. Gnomes have a special way of always making people smile. We hope you will love our Gnomes as much as we do.
