Bekväm Clothing, named for the Sweedish translation of the word "comfortable," is meant to be easy to wear, with simple lines and pretty, feminine details.

The cuts are classic, yet contemporary; scalloped details and Peter Pan collars dominate its spring lookbook. The garments are crafted with natural materials, relying heavily on organic cotton, linen, silk and hemp.
