About

The designer and founder of Timjan Design is Emelie Viola Vilder..

She was born in a small town called Eksjo in Sweden in the year of the monkey, in the galactic wavespell of Crystal Storm under the astrological sign of aquarius...

My passion for fabrics and sewing started when I was a little girl. Back then I created clothes and furniture for my barbie dolls.. Later it was corduroy skirts for myself, and in my later teens I created faery clothes, with pointy hoods, trashy torn edges, glitter and all!

Now, my clothes and style change with each season, but I always have Mother Nature in focus.
I do all the designing and still do a lot of the detail work myself, but most of the actual sewing is made by our amazing teams in India, (where I lives in Goa from October to April…

I do all the designing and still do a lot of the detail work myself, but most of the actual sewing is made by our amazing teams in India, (where I lives in Goa from October to April each year).. There is a lot of singing and laughing woven in to the garment you will get from us.. ♥♥

Our team consists of:
-Emelie Ekenberg - Designer, shop keeper, creatrix, patter maker, scissor witch, path finder....
-Shyam Nepali - Tailor, cutting master
-Ram Nepali - Tailor
-Ramesh Pariyar - Tailor

Our dream is to make all our garments entirely ecologically sustainable. You will find that most items in our shop are already made from ecologically sustainable fabrics, and in the future there is more to come!

Most of our cotton, hemp and linen is dyed with vegetable dye. The nettle products are not dyed at all..

To make sure that all our creations are made in Fair Trade with the countries we are in, we make sure to buy materials only from trusted sources and if we hire people we make sure they work under fair conditions.

Many of our pieces are one of a kind!

Have a beautiful day,

Emelie and the Timjan Team~
