The traditionally hand carved and painted wooden toy known as a DalahƤst (Dala horse) is not only a symbol of its home in Dalarna- it has beenĀ embraced as a mascot representing the handicrafts and spirit of Sweden.

 

Nils Olsson Hemslojd AB has made Dala horses since 1928. It was founded by the two young brothers Nils and Jannes Olsson, who started making the little figures after school to help support their family. Through hard work, skill, and a healthy dash of boldness their efforts were soon rewarded as the beloved toy’s popularity spread throughout the country.

These pieces of cultural art areĀ stillĀ hand painted, so no two are alike. This unique token of good luck makes a wonderful gift to family and friends, or to bring this classic symbol of Sweden into your own home.

(Please note that due to their unique, handcrafted nature the figure you receive will vary slightly from the one pictured. My own red dala horse has green spots instead of the red spots shown, for example- which makes it all the more special!)
