Sweden is known for its breathtaking views, great design and the famous Swedish meatballs. But how are the views in the ecommerce and Shopify landscape?
We were on a mission to find some of the best Shopify stores in Sweden and compiled the following list with 10 amazing stores. This is part 1 in a series.
The list isn’t ranked, and we’re sure there are many more great Shopify stores out there, but hopefully you’ll be inspired by how these stores did it.
CDLP is a design house of luxury essentials. Developed with innovation in Sweden, the line is consciously constructed in Europe using future-oriented materials.
Their underwear is made from Lyocell derived from renewable wood sources, and their swimwear from Econul, an Italian-sourced premium nylon fiber regenerated from ocean and landfill waste.
What’s great about their Shopify store is that it's not just a display of products. Their website content shows the story behind the brand and the art vision that their products stem from. It features mentions from very renowned magazines such as Vogue and British GQ.
Akind is committed to real change. Doing things well is both a choice and a duty to them, and they are doing their best not to deviate from it. The quality of their products must be exceptional, but never at the expense of our environment and ethical principles.
Akind uses sustainable materials and partners with factories committed to exceptional craftsmanship and ethical methods. They make products that last. All their jewellery is made of 100% recycled 14k/18k solid gold that won’t oxidize or discolor.
Their Shopify store uses videos of their manufacturing processes on the website to share their story and values. The rest of their website is very minimalistic, which matches the style of their jewellery very well. This is a great example of how you can use the design of your website to further express the style of your brand.

What really stood out about GLOWiD is they really go over and beyond in educating their customers. Their ‘Learn & Glow’ section is featured prominently on the homepage and provides customers with a lot of information.
Another reason why we’ve included GLOWiD in our list is the dynamic aspects of their store, for instance, the short product-focused video on the homepage.
