Åsa Götander

It all started when we moved the countryside in 1984. Many different products were made in the neighbourhood. Some of the makers I already knew, and I established contacts with others. I finally made up my mind to start my own business. We built a small workshop in 1993 and called it Åsas Tomtebod ie Åsa's Gnome Workshop. The workshop barely made a living but my products became very popular. I started to think that maybe not only local people would be interested. In 2000 I signed up for a fair in Stockholm. This was the start of a big change. When I got back from Stockholm, I had sold out everything and my workshop became the centre for the production of gnomes. I had found my calling.
