Childerns clothes in printed cotton from Durán Textile Historic Collection. 

EmyLittle is a relatively newly started company which is profiled in clothing for children and adults inspired by Swedish folk costume. The company is run by the two sisters Åsa and Karin Kax who have their roots in Hedemora, Dalecarlia in central Sweden. The vivid folk costume tradition in Dalecarila is a great source of inspiration together with an interest for Swedish folklore and 19th century national romanticism. As well as Laila Durán’s book, Scandinavian Folklore, they are a part of the recent trend in fashion and interior design where folklore culture is united with modern function and expression.
Their children’s clothing in folkloristic style has raised attention in Swedish media ever since they were first presented in the Formex commercial fair in 2008. They are now also represented in the costume exhibition of Nordiska Museet, Scandinavian Museum for Ethnology in Stockholm, as a modern comment to the traditional Swedish folk costumes.
Emy Little have produced their own printed rose design, but in the summer collection there are also sun bonnets made from Durán Textiles printed cotton Mynta, Currant and Pumpa. The new products are sewn in Hedemora, in line with the policy of the company on sustainable production and care for environment and local producers. Durán Textiles wishes good luck and look forward to a continued cooperation.

The sun bonnets are inspired by the fashion in the mid 19th century. The illustration is by Elsa Beskow, a famous Swedish writer of children´s books.
