How Uddevalla Barn Began

Being a busy mum raising 4 amazing and beautiful kids who love to play, explore and be always curious and adventurous, I wanted clothes that would to stand up to all the elements of kids play time. I wanted clothes that would withstand lots of washing from the hours of play that my children do. I then stumbled across amazing Scandi brands that was super colourful, fun and non gender based. Being a mum of 4 boys I didn’t want to limit what they wore based on their gender. All colours, are for all kids, cause honestly what kid doesn’t love lots of colours in their lives.

The making of Uddevalla Barn

Pronounced (oo de valla) barn
It translates from Swedish to mean Uddevalla Children

Uddevalla is a town and the seat of Uddevalla Municipality in Vastra Gotaland County, Sweden. My mum lived in Uddevalla as a young child while her dad worked near by in Stenungsund building an oil refinery.

My mum passed away in 2015, and she always loved anything and everything Scandinavian. Barn is the Swedish word for children and as my business is about selling Scandi kids clothes I felt this was a great way to name my business.
