Solstickan Design offers modern and popular products with high quality in home and interior design. The idea of Solstickan design is to preserve and convey a true Swedish classic and thus support the Solstickan Foundation.
Part of the proceeds from the sale go to the foundation Solstickan, whose purpose is to help children and the elderly.
In 1936, the artist Einar Nerman was commissioned to draw the label for the box Solstickan. There and then the classic symbol Solstickepojken (Swedish for Solstickan's boy) was created. The popular boy and the text "For the benefit of children and the old" adorned the boxes and the basic idea was to easily contribute to society by donating a few pennies of each sold box to the Solstickan Foundation. The foundation was already focusing on helping children with disabilities and chronic diseases such as diabetes and rheumatism.Read more about Solstickan
