UNIQUE, ECOLOGICAL, MADE IN SWEDEN
At HildaHilda you will find a vast selection of unique jacquard-woven textile products for your own use, your home or someone you care about. All textiles are woven with ecological cotton and linen yarn. Visit our shops on or offline to let yourself be inspired by our colours and patterns which have come to be quite a few since 1995 when the company was founded.
THE MILL - ONE OF THE MOST ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY TEXTILE PRODUCTION SITES IN THE WORLD
Ekelund has produced ecologically grown cotton since 1995, at first on a smaller scale due to low consumer demand. As time has passed, the cost for organic cotton has come down and it has become more viable to start using the organic cotton for all Ekelund production.
Traditionally grown flax for linen fibers does not require additional watering or chemicals. The best climate is offered by the northern part of France and Belgium. Ekelund requires that all of its linen fibers originate from these districts.
If you would like to know more about the weaving mill's environmental work, visit Ekelund's homepage here.
Ekelund has a transparent environmental declaration on their homepage and they even have their own environmental branding with stricter criteria than the industry in general.
MADE IN SWEDEN WITH OUR OWN WEAVING METHOD
All HildaHilda textiles are designed, woven and sewn in Sweden. We strive to keep it that way.
The weaving method was developed by Lott Hildebrand. All fabric is woven with a white warp with three colours in the weft, the opposite to how it is traditionally done. This allows us to be more flexible in our weaving as it is a lot quicker to change three threads in the weft as opposed to thousands in the warp.
Lott, who designs all patterns, uses her left hand in spite of being right-handed. This gives HildaHilda patterns their characteristic and naive design. A selection of the patterns also reoccur in our collection of birch wood articles, such as trays, pot mats and coasters, all of which have also been manufactured in Sweden according to environmentally friendly standards.
STOCKHOLM, KIVIK, TOKYO & HILDAHILDA.SE
In our web shop you won't find everything we ever made, but you will find lots of it!
We are located in the old town "Gamla stan" in Stockholm all year as well as in Kivik in southern Sweden during Easter, July and August.
Our second largest market is Japan, where we have worked closely with our wholesaler since 2008. A number of articles have been developed with the Japanese market as inspiration.
THE PUBLIC SECTOR
You will also find HildaHilda products in the public sector, such as in hospitals, schools and preschools. As an example we have developed a range of sound absorbing products for teaching environments currently available at Aj Produkter, one of the leading mail order companies for office and school furniture in Sweden.
We also developed a whole series of products for the Scandinavia inspired preschool Mominoki in central Tokyo.
We enjoy getting involved in these types of projects as it allows us to develop new ideas and concepts. Don't hesitate to get in touch for a quote or for more information.
LOTT, GABRIELLA & INGER
The three of us managing the company are Lott, Gabriella and Inger.
Lott founded HildaHilda Textil Produkt in1995 in connection with finishing her degree as Textile engineer. Lott's thesis entailed developing new methods for weaving images in colour, in more cost effective and efficient ways than was done at the time. Lott is today active as Product manager and chief designer.
Gabriella became partner and CEO in 2008 and HildaHilda AB was founded. Gabriella who has a degree in Economics and Human Resource Mgt is responsible for finance, administration, export and retailers.
Inger joined HildaHilda in 2011. Inger is full of ideas and a brilliant seamstress and organizer. Inger manages the shop in Stockholm and takes excellent care of our customers from near and far.
It's a tough business producing in a high cost country like Sweden. That's why most people don't do it.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers over the years, and we are always welcoming feedback, positive and negative, in the attempt to continuously improve ourselves.
