About Our Products
Dale of Norway
Dale of Norway was established in 1879, and since then they have focused on creating quality Norwegian products. Because they run their production in Dale, Norway, they can ensure premium quality every step of the way. Dale of Norway uses two types of wool: Norwegian wool and Merino wool. Norwegian wool is special due to the sheep’s natural mountain life. It comes from “valley sheep” that roam free on the Norwegian hillsides and graze in natural pastures. Merino wool also comes from a certified animal-friendly location and it is also mulesing free. The high quality wool, that Dale of Norway uses, provide insulation, breathability and warmth for its user, among many other benefits. Dale of Norway is a true Norwegian trademark and its quality is ensured by 140 years of fine-tuning of wool and knitwear.
Topaz of Norway
Topaz of Norway has been making shoes since the 1980s. They specialize in seal skin, cowhide and calf skin. You can see a selection of seal skin boots and slippers in our webshop as well. Topaz of Norway is a family business that pays great attention to quality. The company is located in Ulefoss, Norway and they use seal skin from Canada and Greenland. They support seal hunting in the Arctic, along the Labrador Sea, Greenland and the eastern Barents Sea in order to keep the seal population down and away from parts of the coast of Europe. Additionally, this also provides more freedom and income for the indigenous people living in northern areas so they are not dependent on support from the greater society. Seal skin shoes do not need treatment as the skin has a natural layer of fat that is water resistant and has natural heat insulation.
The blankets and seating pads, that you can see on our website, come from a small town in Norway, called Røros. The products go through 100% Norwegian production, are made out of wool from Norwegian sheep and their design features collaborations between Røros Tweed and Scandinavia’s top designers and textile artists. The company has been running since 1940 and it is built upon the local tradition for handicraft and textile production. Røros Tweed pays great attention to the environment, thus they only use wool from selected sheep that graze on fresh and clean mountain pastures in Norway. This does not only ensure that the wool is pure and environmentally-friendly, but it also provides superior quality and functionality.
