LifeStone was founded in 1996 by Katinka Bille Lindahl. The idea came to her one day when she picked up her teenage son from the dentist and he showed her an impression of his teeth.
“Look, mum, that’s my mouth!”
It came to me like a bolt from the blue. She wanted to save the impression and keep it as a memento. Why hadn’t I made a casting of his tiny little toes when he was a baby? What a wonderful memory that would have been…
She started experimenting.
After many months of research on different materials and methods, there was one impression that was exactly what she had imagined.
A beautiful, lasting memento of a time that can never be repeated. A memory for life.
That is how LifeStone AB began. Today, we have the pleasure of receiving orders from new parents in many distant countries. Every day, foot and hand imprints from all over the world – from places as far afield as Alaska, Singapore and California – arrive on our small island off the west coast of Sweden.
