What's In A Name?

HEKSESKUDD, (hex-is-good!) ; Norwegian term translating into English as Witch Strike.

HEKSESKUDD has several meanings, the most common being back pain. We chose it as our company name for the lesser known and probably more poetic meaning of enchantment. We would like to think that the Black Walnut we use to create a good portion of our accessories will cast a spell on you!

We strive to make all of our products, as well as the products we manufacture for our clients, as ecologically sound, sustainable, and non toxic as possible. We believe that our skin, like our tongues, is a membrane that absorbs particles it comes into contact with. With this in mind we ensured that our process is completely non toxic, both for the benefit of our employees and our customers. All the products we make are completely food safe, and eventually compostable! We are pleased that no sacrifice in quality, or economy was required to achieve this.

HEKSESKUDD is situated in Vancouver, British Columbia. We are happily nestled in between the mountains and the sea, tucked away in our cozy shop.
