Stories from Motherhood
For Mothers' Day, we asked our colleagues and the women behind our brands to share with us their short stories about motherhood.
New to Garbo&Friends, CEO Emmelie Johansson, made us smile with her story. It's so easy to have preconceived ideas about every aspect of being a parent, and it is always a shock when the reality is not quite what we expected!
Through life we face situations we have never been in before, but that is really the charm of life. To become a mother is a true journey in so many ways and such a fantastic one. Today I am a lucky mother to two boys and I can’t believe how I could question myself for being a boy mum.

After having her first baby in 2016, Lovisa Tambour discovered the beautiful and imaginative world of Garbo&Friends and loved it. Fast forward five years and now she is Sales Manager of that exact brand! We appreciate the good advice in her story, to live in the present and create memories of the everyday.

Garbo&Friends is an all-women business, working together towards the goal of taking the business, and themselves, to new heights. Today they have 4 distributors (we're so proud to be one of them!) and over 200 retailers in more than 20 countries around the world. When we asked Lovisa about an average working day she told us "It's difficult to describe a normal workday, but what they all have in common is that they are filled with laughter and women empowering women." Cheers to that!
We can't think of more lovely, soft, sustainable and toxin-free bedding for our babes to snuggle up in. To see our beautiful range of Garbo&Friends home textiles click here.
