This playful full-body baby suit keeps your baby warm inside and outside! The idea stems from an old Icelandic folk tale set in the south of Iceland.
"The woman and the sealskin" One day a farmer finds a sealskin lying on the beach by his land. He takes it home and hides it in a wooden chest. A few days later he returns to the beach and finds a crying, naked, young woman sitting on a rock. He brings her to his house and they start living together. As time goes by they get married and have children. But the young woman is restless and often stares quietly out of the window at the ocean. One day, the farmer is off fishing, his wife accidentally finds the key of the chest, opens it, and discovers the sealskin. She puts the pelt on and dives into the ocean saying: “ Oh woe is me, I have seven children on land an seven in the sea.” She never returns. The farmer misses her terribly, often when he goes out fishing, his eyes are filled with tears. But he becomes a very lucky fisherman and when his children play at the beach there often is a seal swimming close to land bringing them beautiful stones and colorful fishes.
