Our company is built on friendship and family. The owners, Valdís, María and Una, are all good friends. Valdís, the company's Director of Cuteness, is a nurse, avid knitter, expert baker and the mother of three lovely children. Maria, Master of Doodles, is an independent graphic designer and mother of two girls. Una, Chief of Cuddling, is jokingly referred to as the "teenager"; she is a Master's student who enjoys working with young people and children in the scout movement.
The idea behind Cuddle-Me was born in the spring of 2005 as a school project by Una, Valdís and their friend Lilý Erla. The project turned into a big adventure for these young women, as they became the winners of a contest for young scientists and represented their country in the 2005 European Union Contest for Young Scientists. The project was based on the idea that a collection of clothes could help parents use infant massage - and after the contest led to the start of the Cuddle-Me company. The product that started it all is now called Cuddle-Me Clothes - it may seem like a regular bodysuit with pictures of cute animals, but actually the animals' tails form massage strokes, so the instructions are "printed" directly onto the child!
