Sweden’s centre for knitted garments!
For decades textiles of the very best quality have been made in the Gällstad region, but the flair for handling yarns and knitting fine garments goes back a lot longer than that. Gällstad is close to Ulricehamn and Borås. This used to be the border region between Denmark and Sweden and many of our forefathers had a pronounced talent for trade. They travelled far and wide and were allowed to cross the border with, among other things, yarns, fabric, knitted socks and mittens. These travelling salesmen went under the name ‘Knallar’.
Over time Gällstad became known for its knowledge of textiles and ready-to-wear clothing, and a centre for factory-knitted garments once electricity became commonly used. Our region is to fashion and the textile industry what the glasswork region is to the county of Småland. You could say that Gällstad is the equivalent of Kosta, that is, a village which is a quality mark in itself and well worth a visit. Today the knitting machines are busy, managed by people from a long line of craftsmen and with the tradition of arts and craft in their bones and a feeling for fashion at their fingertips.
