about elskan

Elskan is a line of modern handmade kidswear established in 2010, designed and created by Amanda Zink. Thoughtful details, hand dyed, hand painted and unique vintage fabrics make each piece as special as your child. Garments are created with a combination of new, preloved and repurposed textiles in primarily natural fibres (think cotton, linen and wool) making each piece comfortable and wearable. Every item is carefully and skillfully crafted: Elskan’s Original Collection is made one piece at a time by Amanda in her home studio in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Amanda believes in top quality craftsmanship and spending that extra bit of time to make Elskan garments as durable as possible, so that they may be passed down as modern heirloom pieces.


Amanda was born and raised in Gimli, Manitoba, Canada- a small fishing town also known as New Iceland. She first learned to sew and knit from her Amma, and Elskan pays homage to this special woman who holds a huge place in her heart. What does Elskan mean? It is an Icelandic term of endearment: like saying darling, love, or dear.
