In a chaotic world, Maileg warms your heart with nostalgic Danish design
Discover Maileg, a world where mice sleep in matchboxes and princesses have coffee parties. The brand was founded by the Danish designer Dorthe Mailil from Herning. During her student days she was already making unique clay figures, the exaggerated proportions of which were met with great admiration. After graduating, she founded the Maileg brand with her husband Erik. The name is a combination of the surname “Mailil” and the Danish word “leg”, which means “to play”. In the meantime she has designed a whole range of magical cuddly toys, for example mice, rabbits, forest animals and more.
All Maileg products stimulate the imagination of the children who play with them and bring their imaginations to life. Dorthe has already won a number of awards with their designs and their products are internationally recognized. The details and accessories are characteristic of her work. Inspired by her time at the Paris art academy “L'ecole d'art de Marseilles”, she kept the flair and beauty of the city in her heart. This feeling gives the mentioned details and accessories at Maileg a beautiful, nostalgic, almost wistful character. Dorthe is still constantly on the lookout for new ideas and inspiration for the next Maileg product. Discover Maileg dolls and animals in our shop and let them warm your heart too.
