The story of Becksöndergaardbegan in the middle of the night somewhere in Asia.
To be a bit more precise, the story began in 2003, when danish design lovers and school friends Anna Søndergaard and Lis Beck went to Seoul in search of inspi- ration, something that could kick- start their new idea: the dream of starting a business together. What exactly they were looking for they did not know.
In addition, the trip was supposed to have been to Hong Kong, but this had been changed at the last minute due to the SARS epidemic. Nevertheless, they were ready for adventure, ready to build something together.
At a chaotic local night market, they stumbled upon the most beautiful items created in eelskin. It was love at first sight, and soon a rather large order for the now iconic granny purse was delivered to their hotel room. At the time, the pair did not know where or how to sell them. They did not know, either, that this would be the founding product, and the very first stepping stone, of an international accessories brand. But what they did know was that, in the end, great design is always down to the product. And they knew to trust the feeling of love at first sight when you lay eyes on a product.
This is why the story of Becksöndergaard is written partly with reBellious love but mostly through our products.
Becksöndergaard create accessories. Design touches of creativity, personality, and rebellion against looking like everyone else. Those details that women and girls around the world fall too much in love with to leave the shop without.
To us, an accessory is the extra dose of personality, and whether it comes as a print scarf, a pair of socks, an umbrella or a bikini, we have succeeded.
Create individuality. To do this, we have to be innovative in everything we do. So when we create one of our signature prints, we do it to tell a story. Every collection tells a story, and every collection is centred on the sTory scarf where sources of inspiration are summed up.

The popularity of these bags is very important for these women, since weaving by hand these pieces and then selling them support the economy of their villages.

P.F. Candle Co. is a Los Angeles-based fragrance company owned and operated by wife-and-husband team Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger.
The P.F. Candle Co. classic line includes a collection of unisex, fresh, botanical, spicy, and wood-based scents packaged in apothecary style amber glass and kraft paper. The line encompasses candles, room sprays, incense, and reed diffusers.
The formula is simple: 100% domestically-grown soy wax, fine fragrance oil, and a cotton-core wick.
Why soy wax?
Soy wax is a plant-based alternative to traditional paraffin wax that reduces our reliance on petroleum byproducts, meaning it’s plastic-free! We love soy wax because it creates clean-burning candles you can feel good about.
And for places or areas where you can not light a flame the option of reed diffusers is perfect. We offer you the same aromas as in the candle line with a duration of 2-3 months. We recommend flipping the sticks every 1-2 weeks.
All of P.F. Candle Co. products are designed and produced in Southern California.
Its mission is to create a high quality fragrance for both the home and the body at affordable prices.
