Ailefo, began in 2015 based in Bornholm, Denmark, was the pioneering Brand to bring organic modeling clay to the European market.
The founder Christiane was a mother with a very creative daughter.
She wanted to create a product, which removed her concern of what might be absorbed through the skin or mouth during her daughter's creative play.
Given the prevalence of allergies in even the youngest of children, the utmost care was taken in developing this product to guarantee its friendly compatibility with even the most sensitive of allergies.
Equally important a product not harming the environment in which the daughter was to grow up.
At home Christiane with the help of her daughter worked intensively, with the production development of Ailefo Organic Modeling Clay.
They kneaded and mixed ingredients over and over again in the pan inherited from her daughter ́s grandparents. It stuck to their fingers, was too dry, the colors were sad or rubbed off. Hundreds of recipes were tested, before they finally had the recipe for Ailefo Organic Modeling Clay.
Ailefo Organic Modeling Clay was launched October 2016. A product of very high standards regarding sustainability, allergy friendliness and scandinavian design.
May 2017 Ailefo received the award "Company of the Year 2017" from Bornholms Erhvervsservice.
