The Danish brand Sissel Edelbo has existed since 2004. The two visionary owners of the brand are Jeanne Sissel Thomsen and Christina Edelbo Petersen. They have used their middle names to create the fashion brand Sissel Edelbo, which is a result of the two women’s passion for foreign culture and clothing. All styles are produced in India, a country the two owners find immensely rich in cultural history and hospitality, and to be a true inspiration in their work.
Their vision is to produce unique pieces made from beautiful vintage sarees and add new life and use to a traditional cultural fabric through modern cuts and silhouettes. The reuse of these antique saree fabrics is also a way of production that is friendly to the environment. Every single saree used in the Sissel Edelbo collections, is handpicked by one or both owners, in the effort to procure just the right prints and colours for their garments.
For Jeanne Sissel Thomsen and Christina Edelbo Petersen it is a great honor to see their unique clothing worn by fashionable women and Sissel Edelbo is proud of their modern translation and transformation of a traditional garment.
