To me, Christmas decorations should be something special, perhaps something that becomes a tradition. I have Christmas decorations given to me from my mother and grandmother, and those items have decorated my Christmas tree since 1980 and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. When my boys move out and get their own Christmas tree, they will receive Christmas tree decorations that belonged to their grandmother and their great grandmother and of course some from me. It is my hope that this will continue for many generations to come. It gives you a warm feeling inside when you look at the tree and think “this glass bead belonged to grandmother, and there hangs the cornet that mother handmade”. I would like to pass on this tradition to other families, with these small, sweet and funny pendants. Also, I have to remember to tell you, that in our home, it is a tradition that the elf decorates our Christmas tree at night.

About the designer
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.
