Did you know that funky Appaman was Norwegian?

Appaman is inspired by, and named after, the childhood companion of founder and designer Harald Husum. While growing up in Norway, Husum befriended a corduroy ape named Appaman. Together they traveled the fields and fjords of their native land, sharing many fantastic adventures. Appaman reflects the whimsical spirit of those youthful times and celebrates the unbreakable bond between a boy and his ape.

Appaman is true to it’s Scandinavian roots but gets daily inspiration from the streets of Brooklyn NY. Launched in the Summer of 2003 Appaman has grown at a steady pace and also been embraced by celebrities like Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brangelina.

We love the essential tees, the coats and oh… check out the arrow dress for girls! Check it out at appaman.com or find your nearest store here.

I’m guessing Harald’s corduroy friend’s real name was Apemannen -The monkey guy, pronounced by a young boy who one day would become a successful designer.

  1. Oh dear. 🙁 Thank you anyway.

    Ah well. I’m going to try the Berlinerkranzer recipe to cheer myself up. (food always works… 🙂 )

  2. Dear Edda.
    Thank you for your kind comment and I’m glad to hear you had a lovely time at the Norwegian Christmas Fair.
    Unfortunately I don’t know of any other Scandinavian Christmas fairs in London in December.
    If any one else knows please share it with us!
    Love theScandinavianMum

  3. Hi!
    Thank you for the blog – I’m really enjoying reading it. I’m here begging for a favour, though: our whole family (me, husband and a 6 and a 3 year old) went to the Norwegian church Christmas fair you recommended, and had a brilliant time. Mmmm, the glogg and sausages! I spent far, far too much money on decorations and yummy food. 🙂 But they are beautiful, expecially my lovely little pewter star, and some angel chimes that remind me of Christmases in Germany when I was little.
    Are there any other Christmas fairs you can recommend, please?

    Edda x
