The Setesdal design evokes history and memories; it is the most recognized Norwegian pattern and has been knitted for generations. This is the original design that started the Norwegian sweater category. The small v-shaped dots are known as the "Lusemønster" (lice pattern) while the crosses were believed to protect from evil spirits.
Our designers are always focused on the authenticity of our garments and use authentic elements to complement many of the designs. These decorative elements are typically chosen specifically for the garment and include pewter buttons, embroidery, zipper pulls and decorative trim giving the overall design an authentic and attractive look.
In Norway, each county has a unique folk costume, known as â€œbunads,â€ that have been used for festive occasions over the past centuries. This particular design is inspired by the Trondelag county bunad; an area with beautiful old wooden houses in the city of Trondheim, located in Trondelag, the capital of Norway during the Viking ages.
