Background

Keeping the body's sensitive parts, such as muscles and joints warm is something that has been important for generations. Today 20% of the population aged 16-84 years suffer from severe pain in neck , shoulders and upper back or joints (Swedish Central Bureau of Statistics). With the development of society have we become all the more sedentary in our everyday lives. The human body is particularly sensitive to cold weather and winds in the body parts where the blood vessels are superficial , such as wrists , neck and stomach / back . Heat increases blood circulation and reduces the risk of strain and injury. Giraf of Sweden has developed a concept based on designing and developing smart , stylish and flexible solutions that help people keep warm and protected .

Anna-Lena Engman , is the founder of Giraf Original , a member of the Swedish Inventors' Association and is also one of the government's female ambassadors for women entrepreneurs. A damaged neck became in 1993 the prelude to an innovation that helped her return to an active life in motion. Today, she runs the company along with her husband, Dan Engman. Together , they build upon the well known and tested concepts combined with modern design and quality.

Giraf of Sweden's products are designed to increase blood circulation in the muscles and joints, thereby increasing the body's self-healing abilities. The concept is based on the positive effect of increased blood circulation and aim to people of all ages who want to stay mobile and active . Simple, functional garments that make life easier and increase quality of life . Characteristic of Giraf of Sweden's products is that they are functional, unobtrusive and easy to maintain.
