As you probably have noticed, we have not been very active on our blog.

For the time being, we would like to point you to our Facebook page, where we will post fantastic Scandinavian design pictures, information about Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, and write about our products.

Hope that you are enjoying your summer.

Cotton and wool

made in bohuslan strives to provide high quality Scandinavian products in mostly natural materials.

The products that we sell from Swedish Klippans yllefabrik are not only high-quality products, but many products are also environmentally friendly.

Klippans yllefabrik, which was founded in 1879, is a family-owned business that started out producing yarn for hand weaving and industrial use. Today Klippan produces a wide range of products from throws, blankets, and pillows to kitchen towels, aprons, and fabric.

To control the quality of the products and manage the production, Klippan owns their own weaving plant in Latvia where they only work with natural fibers, such as cotton, wool, and linen. 

Klippan exports their products to about 30 countries in the world and we are proud to be part of this network of retailer.

We hope that you will enjoy their beautiful products too.
