Christmas shopping in Umeå 2014

Would you like to do some genuine local  shopping with a modern twist then Eljest is the place you are looking for. Swedish design at  its best where designers, artisans and producers from Västerbotten fuse traditional designs and crafts with a modern flare amalgamating continental influences to create unique pieces of jewellery, pottery, clothing, jams and much more. This year Yawama Kids collection of adorable soft toys and cushion covers are among many other handmade products on sale. Our small but very competent team of designers Anna and Clara lidström both have their roots in Västerbotten.

Eljest pop up store pops up once a year just before Christmas offering a spectacular range of handmade products. Tomorrow Saturday the 20th of December, I will be at Eljest from 11,00-16,00hrs. Eljest is on the main walking street this year opposite Lindex. Please pass by just to say hi or browse through the amazing range of products. I would be happy to answer any questions with regards to Yawama of Sweden producers and products. As we say in bemba MWAISENI- WELCOME.
