Back in business

A long paus on the blog. I needed that.
To be honest I have been hard finding the right energy to post anything.
Even on my own instagram as well. Been stuck and feed up on posting things about myself.
Lots of things are happening around us and to document and share every move I havn’t really been up for it. But finally, today is the day for a new update.

I wanted to share my love to our company FGL Store and the people who makes it possible for us.

Few news coming into FGL Store this weekend.
Our best pieces so far, I think.
The pattern, the colours are something completely different to earlier.
Unreal amount of hours has been put into every piece.

14 different screens are used to get this amazing print.
6 artisans printed 100 meters a day, it took 15 days to complete only the printing.
Let me know if you can find something this well made from another store?

FGL is so unique guys, I need to pinch my arm 3-4 times daily to understand what we do here. We are ahead of everyone else.
Natural dyes, wooden blocks that are carved out to make our pattern,
By HAND ! The fabric is dried outside in the sunlight,
it’s a hands on production from start till finish.

Thank god for being a slow fashion buisness, who has no worries about being ”trendy” or work with ”spring” ”summer” ”winter collections. A long lasting wardrobe should be on everyones mind.
I get so tired and sad of all the sales around us. Daily texts and emails about 50% of the sales price?! sad isn’t?

FGL piecec are here to stay.
and you will see the same collection next year.and probably next year.
Easy as that.

Thanks to myself & my partner Kristin and our team in Jaipur that are very talented, we have something really unique.

The shirt and dress seen in the pictures above will be available by this weekend.
Read more about the production here.

Var dig skelv

Look at the words where I’m sat.
‘var dig skelv’ meaning be yourself.
So cute & so true.
Lately I’ve been wearing our skirt like 24/7. And the other day I went to Kristin quickly to leave some parcels, she was wearing exactly the same outfit but in blue.
Ha!


Our little space has become so nice lately. Bring your family and play games outside our shops, perfect ! Jennie & I was working in our stores last week.
We said to have a coffee or two outside but it got to busy.

We did talk about this above thou, how important it is to be yourself.

Lisa got lots of new tee’s ready for you guys. I was lucky to get the green one in the front. They are available in kids sizes to now.

On Friday a lady tried on our lounge pants, and said how she was going to wear them later that same day and it crossed my mind I never used them as everyday wear before. I must say it was a hit cause few customers bought these and the Kåsa blouse on Saturday.

it was me & Engla working this day, we had 30 min that was quiet so we snapped few photos.
I’m Englas god mother and how on earth could she soon be 17! it’s fun working together, she’s soon that same age I was when I found out her mom was pregnat with her. Time flies!

Kärra skirt. So beautiful! Made of fine habutai silk.

The maxi dress have almost been with us since start. Such a ‘timeless’ dress. Perfect for every occassion.

This last pictures was a bit blurry, sorry! But I wanted to share cause this is Englas favourite set .
‘ I love this skirt and it’s perfect together with Varberg knit. 

True that.

Now it’s time to end this busy week! Hoping for a more relaxed week.

Visit Varberg

Yesterday when I was working at FGL Store, we had a visit from a gang who’s been enjoying Halland for 48h. They travelled to the west coast with the MTR train. I followed their journey on stories, well jell from their visit at
stedsans in the woods. We really live in a nice county, Halland. Time to enjoy the places next door.

But anyway, back to the visit. This is how it look when influencers are at work. Snap!

& Smile.
It was nice seeing you all, but it was to short. Hope to meet again soon, Marlene, Jasmina, Sebastian, Anna, Anja, Alexandra!

Alexandra looking cute in our polkadot dress.

When others wear our clothing it always makes me so happy. Almost like I seeing it for the first time again.
Blooming blue dress suits you well Anja.

I got few messages during the wednesday when Kristin and her son Otto were fixing with the fridge. They made a little cafe’ corner. Varbergs smallest café. So next time in FGL you can have a fika if you feel like it.
So cute.

Madelene & I was lucky cause Jake popped in with a Park juice for us both.
As per usual Finn was a sweetheart. My little man, he surely loves being out and about. No one is a stranger and it’s more fun if it’s alot going on.

Starting to be a bit hard having him at work cause he crawls everywhere. Not the best with concrete floor.

A little reminder about our sale on Bua dress. 20% off ends today 23:59
& the whole of July we are open Wednesdays to Saturdays at FGL store! Hope to see you in the store peeps!

also. Farfars Lycka is closed today Saturday due to snoring boring weather. It’s gonna rain all day. We save our energy for the sunny busy days ahead, which means: We could keep open much longer if we are closed on days there’s no people around. Enjoy your Saturday.

What’s coming up

Our FGL store & our lovely neighbours Clart Studio.
Whats new for this week are extended opening hours for both shops.
Wednesdays & Thursdays 14.00-18.00, Fridays & Saturdays 10.00-14.00.
This Friday we’re having a wardrobe cleanse between friends. FGL offers good prices on samples and lots of other things to.

The other day when I was working the shop was very busy.

Marlene was stoping by with her mom. They were going to Strömma Farmlodge for the weekend to sell her coffee. You gotta try it if you havn’t already.
Always lovely to see Marlene she’s so sweet.

Clart Studio. Colourful, playful and very arty.
Love it.


Make sure you visit Lisa Jennie & Fridas place when at Brukstorget this summer. I love that we are neighbours to Röda korset second hand shop as well. Talk about a busy shop, long ques outside before they open their doors every week. There’s an interview with Jennie on Kristins blog right now, I just read it all and I cried. Life huh, sometimes bloody shiet. and most of the times bloody nice. We all carry on a story and it’s fine sharing, both the good and the bad things.

Before I forget to mention, there’s a deal going on at FGL Store,
ends on Saturday so visit before it sell out.

Much love.

Kustfolk day 2

With over 1500 visitors the first day we were over the moon happy !
Day 2 was here and it was busy from start till finish.

Jennie & Liz was excited.
Liz my cousin is a hair dresser and a NLP coach.
If in need if some coaching or getting your hair done I can highly recomend Liz. She’s the best!

The 3 owners of Clart Studio is Lisa Jennie & Frida, great each one of them but amazing together! Love their studio.

Everything at Clart studio is fun colourful and beautiful. All made by lisa jennie or frida.

I had no time to take any photos really, just before we opened up in the morning. Miss Janna Swim wear is getting her monter ready. How cool is it that she make her swim wear of recycled fishing nets! 

Varberg Verket were outdoors this weekend.
I know they sold out both days – we were lucky with the weather indeed.

These buns above was not bad at all.

Patternplan. Anette is always so kind and lovely.

Finn got lucky I bought him a new body from Frida Clerhage.

When I came home on Sunday night I didn’t move from the sofa.
My heart was full but my body was tired.
Meeting more than 2000 people in two days takes a lot of energy
I started this post in the night but didn’t get down before today. hahah!

Kustfolk 2019 was a success and we’re planning for a new event later this year.

Thank you for joining us peeps, till next time.
