Norwegian sweaters have been experiencing a major revival in Central Europe for several years.
Although they were always present with the Scandinavians, you see the beautiful knitting patterns more often
in our cities and on the ski slopes in the Alps.
This is not surprising, because the subject of sustainability is on everyone's lips and natural fabrics such as wool are very popular.
In addition, quality awareness among fashion-conscious consumers is increasing - and which fashion item is more timeless and of higher quality than an original Norwegian sweater?
The tradition of the Norwegian knitting pattern comes from the Setesdal in southern Norway. Fishermen women used to expand different patterns to protect their men on the high seas. Selburose, an eight-leaf rose, for example, is often used in the artful Nordic patterns.
Although striking, large patterns were more common, nowadays it is mainly simpler and "everyday" motifs and patterns that create subtle accents.
Often only three different colors are used, resulting in a coherent overall picture.
One of the top providers of genuine Norwegian sweaters is Dale of Norway.
The traditional company was founded in 1879 by Peter Jebsen.
Very high-quality Norwegian sweaters have since been knitted in the small town of Dale in western Norway and sold around the world.
The quality is unparalleled.
Whether made from cuddly soft merino wool or made from sustainable new wool, an original Norwegian sweater from Dale of Norway has been accompanying the owner for many years.
The continuous mega trend back to sustainable and skin-friendly wool products has given a new impulse in recent years.
Whether at home in city offices, at Christmas markets, at mountain tops or in living rooms, you will see the striking Norwegian sweaters everywhere.
What has become a trend in recent years has always been a matter of course for the Norwegians: ethically responsible, sustainable and environmentally friendly production.
So all the energy for the small factory is extracted from the falls in the valley.
The Norwegian virgin wool originates locally and from raw wool to the finished Norwegian pullover, production continues to take place in Norway.
They are rightly proud of that. And customers are also happy, because wool is one of the most sustainable textile raw materials, naturally antibacterial (so there are no unpleasant odors), durable and warms even when it gets wet.
Anyone who thinks of a large, thick sweater with enormous patterns in a Norwegian sweater will be amazed by what has happened on the market in recent years.
Of course, traditional Norwegian sweaters are still available today.
However, much has been developed and Dale of Norway has understood how to develop new technologies and present real innovations like no other company.
The used merino yarns, for example, have become increasingly fine over the decades without increasing the pills.
Pilling refers to the formation of nodules in low quality yarns, which are often used in inexpensive products from many manufacturers.
In the store the sweater is still soft and feels of high quality, a few washes later, unfortunately things look different: nodules form, the sweater deforms more and more and after a short time wearing comfort decreases considerably.
The optics also suffer considerably.
At Dale of Norway, great importance is attached to the development and use of high-quality yarns that are softer than many competing products, but that retain their properties even after many washes. The price difference is quickly put into perspective, because you can enjoy a real Norwegian sweater for years.
Quality and fair production have their price!

They only use Schoeller yarns that guarantee the independent, ecological bluesign® standard that they have produced with regard to human health and the environment.
KAMA started as a small domestic production
The founder of KAMA, Mahulena Pertlová, was on maternity leave in 1989. She loved knitting hats for children and acquaintances. The hats were very popular at the moment, but were not allowed to be sold because the regime at that time did not allow anyone to trade freely. The first opportunity arose in craft markets, after which the home factory at Pertl was created. The children's room in her apartment in Letňany soon became a shipping warehouse. Mahulena quickly asked her sister Katarina to work with her. The KAMA brand originated from the combination of their two first names. They did not like Maka :)
The company sponsors top athletes and young talents. They have been working with charities for a long time.
Kama produces exclusively in the Czech Republic and only uses materials of the highest quality that are environmentally certified.
