About

Our Elfs wants to travel 

Etly has sold her Elfs to friends and Family for more than 30 years, now we would like to send our lovely Elfs out into the world, to bring joy and Hygge to their new homes :)

We are working on these new Elfs and hope to bring them to shops near you too.

Danish design is combining nature, beauty and personality, into making things that helps create a mood or atmosphere in a home. Etly Klarborg designs small personalized Elf portraits of people. Mostly her own family but also friends or strangers she has met in her life. She loves fable creatures and has a special love for Christmas. Since she was a child she has designed her Elfs, made by hand from clay, before they are cast in a special porcelain. Then they are hand painted and given a name and their own personal story. Each Christmas they bring hygge and atmosphere to your home, and remind you of the people you love.

 Etly started developing her skill when she was growing up on the country side in Denmark. She remembers many hours of fun with her Mother Sonja, who was also very creative. Sonja passed on these skills to Etly and her Brother Peter. And since she was a child and up through her twenties, Etly perfected these skills working on different projects like a H. C. Andersen park to be full of figures from his well known fairytales. But she also worked for DamThings as a designer and worked on different projects here, other than the famous Good Luck Troll, now starring in the movie Trolls.

We have started this project because we would like to raise money to startup production of Etly´s Elfs and send them all around the world. We have many fans in Denmark but think we could spread even more Hygge to the whole world, if we could raise money to do it!

 So, here is our timeline :D

 Rewards

We have planned for a bunch of limited edition unique designs for our backers! 

We have 25 Teddi's all with their own unique details. Not one is exactly the same! + Etly will not only paint these details herself, she will also sign each Teddi, making them valuable collectors items.

Teddi was designed more than 20 years ago, now we will make 25 unique teddi´s :)

Brother & Sister with details only found one these limited 200pcs. They are actually made as a self-portrait of Etly herself and her brother Peter.

Limited Kickstarter Traveller Elf. Etly will design an Elf in the size of Brother Peter, and it will only be available here on Kickstarter. Each backer who buys our Traveller Elf will earn this special design that marks the beginning of the Scandinavian Elfs biggest adventure so far! The traveller Elf is not finished yet, but will be the size of Brother Peter and have some unique details, perhaps his luggage or favorite pet. You'll have to wait and see! But we guarantee you can't help but smile when you see him.
Our Traveller Elf is not limited but, if we reach our campaign goal, he will only be made for our Backers as a special thanks for helping us on our way.

Shipping & Quality Assurance.

As the project primarily started out as a venture to try to expand our Hyggelige Elf to the USA, this was our main focus. But soon we saw increasing interest from all over the world. And so now we have expanded to ship worldwide. But please note that shipping to countries outside USA, Canada or Europe may add some additional shipping costs. If you want to be sure please send us an email to martin@klarborg.com and Martin will tell you if there is any extra shipping cost involved :) Probably not, but better safe than sorry, right!

We want to make sure that every single Elf we ship will have a comfortable and safe journey to their new homes. That means we will inspect each Elf to make sure they are in perfect condition before the travel, and provide them with comfortable shipping accommodation. Well wrapped and ready to go :)

Please note: If the shipping address is outside EU, customs and VAT may apply!

Etly har solgt hendes Klarborgnisser til venner og familie i mere end 30år. Nu har nisserne fået rejselyst, og vi vil gerne sende dem ud i verden og lære udlandet lidt om vores danske hygge og juletraditioner :)


Vi har her lavet nogle helt specielle produkter som kun kan fåes som en del af vores kickstarter projekt. Etly Klarborg kombinerer natur, kunst og personlighed, når hun skaber hendes små glade væsner. Det er med til at skabe en bestemt stemning og atmosfære i de hjem de står i i dag.Etly laver små portrætter af mennesker. Oftest hendes egne familiemedlemmer, men også venner og tilbagevendende kunder som har besøgt hende gennem årene i hendes butik. Hun elsker fabeldyr og er specielt fascineret af vores danske jul. Siden hun var barn har hendes mor Sonja fortalt historier om nisser og eventyrlige væsner. Etly har siden lavet mange forskellige designs i ler. Enhver nisse starter som en klump ler, som Etly så modelerer til det færdige design. Herefter tørres og brændes nissen. Så skal der laves en form over nissen, hvori vi kan støbe i en speciel porcelæn. Når porcelænen er størknet, er den klar til at blive malet af Etly. Så maler Etly nissen. Alle detaljer kommer fra Etlys hånd, og øjnene er et helt unikt varemærke som er helt specielt for Etlys designs. Når nissen har gennemgået denne proces, står den som et værk, klar til produktion.
Men lige inden den kommer ud i butikkerne, får den også sit navn og sin historie. Hver nisse har en lille personlig historie. Nogle har Etly skrevet selv udfra hvordan hun oplever den person som hun portrættere, andre har personen selv eller den nærmeste familie skrevet de ord de synes, ville være en dejlig beskrivelse af deres nærmeste. Denne personlighed hver nisse har med sig, er med til at skabe hygge og stemning, men også virke som en lille "reminder" om de mennesker vi holder af :)

Vi har startet dette projekt fordi vi vil indsamle penge til at udvikle vores projekt i udlandet, og starte en ny produktion der kan sendes til vores nabolande. Vi har så mange glade fans herhjemme, så tænker at udlandet går glip af vores danske "Hygge". Det er blevet et begreb i fx USA, men forstår de nu helt hvad det betyder? Det tænker vi at vi må hjælpe med at sikre :) For hygge er ikke noget man skal tage let på, det er noget man skal øve sig i. Gerne tit og ofte, og sammen med andre :)

Vi har derfor lavet nogle unikke "Backer Rewards" altså Gaver til vores støtter. Disse gaver kan kun fåes gennem denne kampagne hvis den bliver en succes. 

Vi laver 25 Teddi, hvor Etly maler nogle helt unikke detaljer på hver enkelt. Så ingen af de 25 Teddi bliver ens, og der findes kun denne serie på 25 designs. Så ejer man en af disse Teddi, skal man passe rigtig godt på den! Med Etlys egne penselstrøg og signatur, bliver de med garanti et værdifuldt samlerobjekt.

I kan købe et sæt Etly og Bror Peter, hver med et takkekort fra Etly samt hendes underskrift på jeres sæt. Der vil kun være 200 af disse sæt her på Kickstarter :)

Etly sidder lige nu og skaber de nye designs til 2019. Og èn af dem bliver en RejseNisse, der bliver på størelse med Bror Peter og markere begyndelsen på Klarborgnissernes nye eventyr :) 
I må vente med at se det endelige design, men vi garantere at man ikke kan lade være med at blive glad og fyldt med optimisme når man ser på denne rejse lystne eventyrer! 
Denne nisse er ikke limiteret men den vil kun blive tilgængelig her på kickstarter, så er man én blandt 200 der køber, så har men én af 200 af disse special designs. Der vil selvfølgelig være et takkekort og Etlys signatur på hver enkelt RejseNisse.

Betingelser:

Hvis vi når vores kampagnemål, vil i får en update på hvornår i vil kunne forvente at modtage jeres støtte gaver :) 

Hvis vi ikke når vores indsamlingsmål, vil i få refunderet jeres støttebeløb jævnfør Kickstarters betingelser. 

Når i har støttet vil i modtage en bekræftelse, men i skal først opgive addresse til forsendelse såfremt kampagnemålet nåes. Så vi kontakter jer såfremt projektet når i mål og vi skal til at sende jer jeres unikke samlerobjekter :)

Risks and challenges

Setting out to find new homes for our lovable Elfs in countries far away from little Denmark is a challenge, but we feel that the world needs a little more Hygge and Etly's Elf are eager to travel and help out. So we are sure we will succeed :)

But the things we need to do is to finalize the unique designs, make packaging for these limited edition designs and ship them out. It takes time to design the final versions and then Etly has to paint the unique details on each Elf and Reward. But it is definitely possible to do in time to ship these Rewards in November in time for the Holidays.

So we are not worried, we are just excited to get going! As are our Elfs :)
