We like to say we’re Driven By Nature Since 1879.
Driven by Nature
We belive wool can be one of the keys to a more sustainable future. With a persistent focus on making high-quality garments of 100% wool, our collections are designed to last, design-wise and quality-wise. Our annual collection launch is equally focused on the continuation of our classic bestsellers. And just as important: If you take proper care of your Dale-garment, you’ll be able to able to pass it on to the next generation.
Inspired by nature
Due to the cold winters, Norway has a long tradition in wool and knitwear.While the harsh climate and rugged nature had people facing countless challenges, it also left them with an abundance of opportunities. This provides us with a rich heritage of beautiful patterns inspired by nature and history. Some patterns we keep unaltered, others are transformed into new, contemporary designs.
Through ingenuity and craftmanship, the unique properties of wool offered invaluable protection from the elements. The insulating and moisture wicking properties of wool allows us to respectfully explore the powers of nature, even when the weather conditions are far from ideal. We love being in the great outdoors, regardless of weather.
Without hydroelectric power and wool Dale of Norway could not have existed. Since the very beginning in 1879, the local Bergsdal river has powered our factory at Dale. Our factory is still situated a mere stone’s throw from the river that powers the transformation from wool to ready garments.
