LOCALLY PRODUCED SINCE 1946
The family firm of Ivanhoe was founded in 1946 in Gällstad, a district known as Sweden’s own knitting centre, where tradition and pioneering spirits still live on. Several generations experience and competence enable us to continously develop both base and functional garments.
Sustainable fashion is not just about choosing the right fiber & materials, it is also about the choice of producer, how they act, their choices and where they are located, how far the garments need to be shipped etc. We produce our garments in our own factory in Gällstad, and at partner companies in Europe, with whom we have a very transparent cooperation. Manufacturing in Sweden and Europe gives shorter distances for transports, which instantly gives a lower environmental impact.
In our production facility in Gällstad where approximately 90% of all knitting takes place, we also have our design- and sample department, embroidery service and a small sewing department.
