A wealth of stylish patterns, inspired by the textile history of Norway.
One of the oldest textile factories in Norway, Salhus Tricotagefabrik (1859-1989) operated outside Bergen for over 130 years, producing thousands of sweaters and other durable everyday clothes such as wool and cotton underwear and woolen socks. The technical limitations of the knitting machines of the day gave rise to timeless geometric motifs with strikingly distinctive featuresâ??motifs which inspired some of Norway’s best-loved knit designers to come together and create this strikingcollection of all-new contemporary handknit garments, now translated into English for the first time.
