Selected wool from Norwegian sheep, combined with collaboration with leading Scandinavian designers and textile artists, has made Røros Tweed one of the most reputable producers of 100% Norwegian-made brands.
Røros, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was once a mining town 600 meters above sea level. The valuable copper discovery brought wealth to some but left many in poverty. When Peder Hiort, the mine's director, passed away in 1789, he left his fortune to a foundation supporting textile education and providing raw materials to the poor. This legacy laid the foundation for Røros Tweed, a tradition of handcraft and textile production. In 1940, Røros Tweed became a sales outlet for exquisite handmade textiles.
