In 1992, I just moved to villages in the mountain forests to chase rural life. I started raising Angora rabbits in a small farm, and lived by selling rabbit hair. Some day, Harry Potter magic struck me when I took a stroll along the forest way, since tomtes and forests are closely related in Scandinavian legend, an idea of tomtes begun to generate. I found some cloth and rabbit hair, began sewing and mending my first tomte. In a Swedish mind, tomtes are always awake at night, protect our farms and dispel the nightmare.
After that, I gave many tomtes away to my friends. Meanwhile, many rabbit hair buyers wanted to order some tomtes. So I decided to turn tomte into a startup. This is the story about ITOMTE. I hope that they can also bring happiness, protection and maybe, a little magic to you.
What is a gnome?
Gnome also known as a Tomte or Nisse. Not many people have seen them because they are very shy and live in the woods. A tomte is a mythological creature from Scandinavian folklore today typically associated with the winter solstice and the Christmas season. It is generally described as being no taller than three feet, having a long white beard, and wearing a conical or knit cap in red or some other bright color. The tradition of tomte/nisse is also associated with Christmas. It is known as a gift bearer and is considered one of the Scandinavian versions of Santa Claus.
A nisse (usually Norwegian) and a tomten (usually Swedish) are different characters, some may act up, some are quiet and sweet. But they are both hard-working, naughty domestic sprites responsible for the protection of the farmstead and house. Tomten literally means “homestead man” and they will bring lucky to you all the time.
Use them to embellish your home and rack up your family and friends as gnome lovers.
No matter on holiday, wedding or party, they are eye-catching decor. So creative for sure during traditional gift-giving.
Home, fireplace, car, Christmas tree, key and bag? Yep, anywhere! They can integrate into anywhere and stay forever to protect you.
