About Us


The Viking Girl (VG) brand exemplifies the strong, fearless, and independent spirit of women and children worldwide. The company provides handcrafted and unique Scandinavian-inspired designs and products for women and children of all ages. The company was founded by Chantal McDaniel. She grew up in New Jersey and currently resides in Richmond, Virginia with her husband and three sons. Her grandfather, John Gerard Olson, and grandmother, Greta Olson, immigrated from Sweden to the United States in 1925 and 1928, respectively. Chantal’s Scandinavian heritage and family traditions inspired her to establish a business that honors Scandinavian traditions and inspires younger generations to celebrate Nordic culture.
