Dale of Norway

Known worldwide for their iconic Nordic sweaters, Dale of Norway are synonymous with exquisite knitwear made in Norway. A local brand with flawless Norwegian design.

Being one of the very few textile companies with production in Norway, Dale of Norway are able to pay close attention to every stage of the production. This ensures premium quality in every garment – a Dale of Norway trademark since 1879.

Over the past 145 years, they have developed their own designs, and redesigned age-old Norwegian patterns, turning them into garments for fashion and sport with an authentic history. Since 1956 they have been outfitting the national Norwegian ski team with official sweaters for all Winter Olympic Games and World Championships.

Back in 1879, the small village of Dale was as an ideal place to establish a textile production facility utilizing the valley’s potential for natural hydro power, the easy access to Norwegian wool and strong knitting traditions.

There is a growing shift towards products and producers with smaller footprints, focusing on quality, the origin of raw materials, and workers' welfare. Rediscovered as a sustainable and remarkably practical fiber, wool is back in fashion. And with a production still powered by local waterfalls, Dale of Norway continue to craft exquisite sweaters of 100% wool that effortlessly blend quality, longevity, and style, all infused with Norwegian heritage and tradition.

The Dale of Norway Factory Outlet and museum

The best way to experience the brand, its history and collection is to visit their factory located in the tiny village of Dale, just outside Bergen. This has been the location of the factory since the start-up in 1879. Here you can make a bargain on premium knitwear knitted literally just feet away from the Factory Outlet – and get a unique insight in Norwegian textile history at the same time.

All visitors to the Factory Outlet are granted free access to a small museum showcasing the company's history and an exhibition of official Olympic- and World Championship sweaters from 1956 to present.

A complete guided tour of the museum, including a visit to their working factory, is offered. Please note that a guided tour must be booked in advance (NOK 60 per adult, free entrance for kids).
