Ellevill is owned and operated by Benedicte Andreassen in Norway. She started by sewing mei tai’s in 2007 …”and when I could not deliver to the high demand, I tried to focus on what I could do to give the market my products called Ellevill, that means hillarious. I found out that there was not another Norwegian or Scandinavian company that made wraps and I decided to be the first. I contacted an Indian factory and got samples. In May 2008, the first wraps arrived and sold out very fast and from there it has just grown, very fast. In 2010 I decided to go from a registered “oneman” company to the registered stock company, Ellevill AS.”
Benedicte does everything herself, from designing new fabrics/colorways, web design, packing, shipping and customer service – she is a one woman army with a wonderful dream that we are so thankful she has shared with us all!
“Much work, much guts and much love for wrapping and baby products helped me to get where I am today. And Ellevill is still growing, fast. (I like to say we, because it is me and Ellevill!). I always try to be best at what I believe I can be – design, colors, patterns and quality. The market is harder today, because of all the new brands that have “popped up” in the last couple of years, but I try to focus on my products and what makes Ellevill the best wraps.” …and, it shows! Thank you, thank you, Benedicte!!
Ellevill’s tag line is “Carry With Pride.”
