Keep an eye out for the symbol that shows the way to an environmentally conscious choice – ECO! Polarn O. Pyret places high demands on all our products, but the environment is in particular focus for products with the ECO symbol – we reduce environmental impact by selecting materials consisting of organic cotton or recycled synthetic fibers. Organic cotton means that the fiber is cultivated without the use of chemicals such as synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. This is good for the environment and for the people working with the plants! Recycled synthetic fibers (polyester and polyamide) allow us to reduce usage of new fibers that derive from non-renewable sources (petroleum) and to save the energy required for extraction. Some of our ECO-labelled products are also …

December 13th is St Lucia Day, a time for singing, mulled spiced wine, and saffron buns. Originally a Catholic feast day, Lucia is a special day that is celebrated all around Sweden, especially in schools and nurseries. The day starts with a Lucia procession early in the morning when it is still dark outside. Lucia herself enters the room wearing a long white Lucia dress with a red silk ribbon around her waist and a crown of candles on her head. She is followed by singing flower girls with glitter in their hair, star boys wearing cone hats, and last but not least, mischievous gingerbread men and elves.
