“There’s so many people that gets affected by breast cancer every year, not only the women that sickens but also their friends and family. It’s a disease that concerns all of us and we take great responsibility and honor in designing the Pink Ribbon of 2012″ – Karin Söderlind, Dagmar.

The House of Dagmar was launched 2005 by the three sisters Kristina Tjäder, Sofia Wallenstam and Karin Söderlind. Their muse and inspiration source had always been their grandmother, Dagmar, who passed away from cancer.
