We offer a range of 100% wool products for home and leisure. Since 1953 we have strived to give our costumers high quality products in 100% pure new wool. We weave our fabrics on the original Berger blanket looms now situated in Latvia, and we still stitch a great part of the garments in Norway to maintain the unique knowledge and quality we have earned during the years.
