Adam Klarborg Elf
He’s funny and witty. He has a huge imagination and is excellent at telling funny stories. But even an elf who’s so full of energy can get sleepy. After a quick nap, he’s once again ready to share more of his brilliant stories.

About the designer Etly Klarborg
Artist Etly Klarborg loved elfs and their significance in Danish folklore long before she started her company in 1986. She grew up with a vibrant imagination and created her first elf at just 4 years old, crafting it from mud while playing outside. The creatures helped connect her with her own mother, a storyteller whose personality shone bright.
It is the childlike quality of the elfs that have endured for all these years. When her oldest son, Martin, was young, he would play in his pajamas, his small belly popping out. So, too, then, did Martin the elf’s midsection.
