Sovende Bjorn was born from a love of daydreams and campfires. After leaving a much loved job as a childrens bookseller where I spent too much quiet bookshop time climbing mountains and fighting dragons in my head I opened Sovende Bjorn in 2016 with a mission to design and sell gifts and homewares that bridged the gap between daydreams and mountains. From unicorns and mermaids to the woods and forests.
This Spring I moved into a new studio in beautiful County Durham where, with my faithful hound beside me, each product is designed and made to inspire you with good vibes or just to make you smile and maybe wish you were outside somewhere, with maybe a unicorn or two.
Sovende Bjorn: The Sleeping Bear. The name comes from an old nickname and some advice an old Norwegian friend gave me.
