"Alex and I met six years ago when I moved to Australia with my family. My biggest concern with the move was that my two children would lose their Swedish heritage and language. I joined a Swedeish play group in Toorak and met Alex there the first time. With children the same age we ended up spending a lot of time together. Once our youngest started prep we decided it was time for a new chapter in our lives. We knew we wanted to do something together, something with an origin in Scandinavia and something we could be truly passionate about.” /Elle

 

"I had already been in Melbourne 6 years when Elle and I got to know each other. Both my kids are born here and I have always spoken Swedish to them. I was born in Stockholm but I love my life in Melbourne. The journey I have started now with Alex&Elle is so exciting. The response to our fabric wall art has been overwhelming. It is beautiful and in true Scandinavian tradition combines form and function. We work together and we have fun; from choosing designs to hand making the pictures and wrapping them. We just love it!” /Alex
