deelicious is a swedish brand created by the busy bee Maria Dee from the Dalecarlian woods. It all started on the road around the world! As a pro snowboarder she travelled a lot and had mountains and snow as her working field. It was hours of travelling, different countries to discover and lots of nature to experience.
Maria had always been inspired by creativity and art; by colours, by old torn doors, handicraft and architecture; by meeting older people and seeing youngsters. To knit was a way of relax from the focus on the sport and a way of beeing able to create. After a while the knitted creations became coveted by others in the winter world. When the snowboard career ended after an injury it was time to turn a corner and start writing on a new chapter.
