Original Norwegian company with a long family tradition. SVALBARD sweater is a traditional fishing sweater, densely knitted from 100% Norwegian wool in a dark blue (navy) color with a light pattern.
SVALBARD sweater is a traditional model of a single-layer sweater knitted from 100% coarser Norwegian wool. Norwegian fishermen have been using it for its warmth since time immemorial. In addition to waiting for fish, you will also warm up on other activities, on hikes, on huts, and on skis. We recommend a t-shirt or a shirt under a sweater!
It was the year 1927 when my grandfather founded a small textile factory on the ground floor of his farm in the mountain village of Tveiten on the island of Osteroy in the west of Norway. The company was successful and soon became an important employer for people around. New models were proposed for the factory throughout Norway. In 1947 production moved from the mountains down to the valley to the Osterfjord fjord, where our headquarters are still located. Since woolen underwear we have worked to produce woolen sweaters for children and adults. We have been using Norlender for our products since 1989. Design of Norwegian sweaters and accessories is based on the rich tradition we are proud of in Norway. Also, our changing weather has taught us a lot in clothing production. Therefore, we also use only wool for production. We are committed to a family tradition and we are happy to offer you the latest Norlender models for your comfort and enjoyment.Astrid Tveiten - owner
