Tomte is the Swedish 'Santa Claus'; also known as 'Jultomte'.  According to Nordic folklore, Tomte bring gifts on Christmas Eve (also known as 'Julafton', when Christmas is traditionally celebrated in Sweden).

The Tomte has become an iconic symbol of Christmas in Sweden.  Share the joy of the holiday season by sending a Tomte card with your gift or as a holiday greeting, it is a work of art worthy of framing!

These handcrafted cards are designed in Minnesota by Anh Nguyen, and then handcrafted in her home country of Vietnam by artisans who use the Vietnamese technique of 'quilling' (rolling strips of paper and creating a design).

There is no better gift during the holiday season than to share a special greeting card that is also a work of art worthy of framing!

These beautiful cards showcase both Anh's Vietnamese heritage, and a love for the outdoors ~ what we call 'Friluftsliv' (the Nordic concept of open air living).
