Maileg is a company that produces beautiful Danish gifts, including classic Danish dolls and toys. This company was founded in 1999 by designer Dorthe Mailil and her husband Erik. Maileg was born from a combination of her last name and the Danish word for play: “leg.” The result was a company committed to providing beautiful, authentic Danish gifts for both children and those still young-at-heart. Maileg first started with pixies, who represent an important aspect of Danish folklore and culture. From there, Maileg’s selection expanded to include other animals and creatures important to Danish heritage, including rabbits, mice, and forest friends.
Like with most of the other companies we work with at Scandinavian Shoppe, Maileg has built a business committed to sustainable practices. They produce their products in a facility that follows environmentally-friendly procedures. On top of that, they have set sustainability targets for their company, including shipping products only by sea, only using polybags when necessary, and reusing export cartons.
