Tilda’s new ‘Pie in the Sky’ is now available on our website! We love the story behind these new designs According to Tone Finnanger, the founder of the Tilda brand, the Pie in the Sky collection "is a sweet and colorful nod to children like me who struggle with dyslexia and cope by creating alternative, creative worlds full of ideas -- hence the collection name, Pie in the Sky. By being patient and continuing to create, you will eventually find your place in the world."
