Please work with us to help ALL our children
At Isak we make beautiful happy things for the home because we adore thinking that - in a small way - we are creating a wonderful world for our families to live in. A world where our children can feel safe, loved and cared for. That is why we were so moved to be introduced to the work of Children on the Edge (COTE) and why we are so excited about telling you about our new friendship.
Children on the Edge is a lean, grassroots, local charity with a global reach which exists to help the most marginalised and vulnerable children in the world - particularly children without parental support. Children who are on the edge.
Of course when we care for our own children we are preoccupied with whether they are warm enough, getting enough sleep, doing their homework, eating their greens... At Isak we cannot bear the idea that there are so many children in the world who have no parents to care for them and who cannot count on even the basics - food, shelter and security. We had to do something so, in conversation with our friends at Children on the Edge, we came up with a cunning plan which lets our customers look after their own children at the same time as giving these other vulnerable children their childhood back too.
We value our relationships with all our friends and we see our shops as being a vital part of the Isak family. We hope you will like our new exclusive poster which we have designed to support Children on The Edge. See below for details.

Lots of our lovely customers are facing a bedding crisis with family inviting themselves to stay for Christmas, so why don't we give you a little treat with a free pair of our immensely popular Blossom and Bill mugs for every bedding set you buy in time for Christmas?
Everyone buying bedding will receive 2 pairs of Blossom & Bill cups!
That way, you have lovely crisp new sheets for your visitors to snuggle down into and a gorgeous new mug to enjoy your coffee in while you sort out the rest of your Christmas preparations. Heck, we will even give you two so you can use one as a stocking filler.
Hope this can inspire some of you!

Surround yourself with beautiful happy things
ISAK, the brainchild of Swedish designer and illustrator Sandra Isaksson, is a brand of design gifts and co-ordinated home accessories that will certainly bring a smile to your face. The mix of Scandinavian clean lines and harmonious colour combinations, together with joyous splashes of inspiration drawn from Isaksson’s travels and heritage, forms playful designs that do not take life too seriously. With products by ISAK, you can surround yourself with beautiful happy things all day, every day.
As a 12-year-old girl, Isaksson already felt a desire to design things; she loved drawing and knew that she wanted to give her illustrations a shape and a function. After studying languages and travelling around the world, she finally pursued this dream by studying graphic design and illustration in Denmark. And after the birth of her sons, illustrating for children has been very close to her heart. While she takes on design commissions from all around the world, she is also the head designer and founder behind ISAK, a Scandinavian-British fusion brand, which sells products to lighten up the modern kitchen, lounge and kid’s room.
The look of her designs for ISAK pays homage to the 50s and 60s, as well as, of course, classic Scandinavian design traditions. “I think back to Sweden a lot for inspiration: my childhood, things that I miss. I indulge in the good memories. I’m also inspired by designs I saw growing up; I come back to Marimekko a lot, for example. I want to create everyday products that my children and I can use; it’s important that they are functional and look pretty at the same time,” says Isaksson.
“My design world is very Scandinavian: very clean with sharp lines,” she continues. “The images are two dimensional and naïve, going to back to the childhood again.”
ISAK products are mainly made in Europe, and it is very important for Isaksson to use the best materials available, recycle as much as possible and treat people well, creating an ethical brand. For example, for the packaging of their trays, ISAK take advantage of reusable tote bags, and the boxes for cups are also made to look very nice so that customers would not just throw them away.
