Solvej founders, Jenny (from New Zealand) and Thomas (from Sweden), met in Western Australia in 1986. During a visit to friends however, Jenny and Thomas discovered that their daughter Solvej, just a baby at the time, loved swinging. Not being able to find a swing they liked on the market (most of them being moulded plastic), they made her a canvas baby swing themselves. This swing turned out to be attractive to other parents too and a decision was made to go in to production.
From those humble beginnings, their idea has grown and grown. Using only quality timbers, ropes and fixings, Solvej swings are beautiful, durable and safe.
