You've found the leading Swedish store in the U.S. specializing in Swedish imports and Scandinavian gifts of all types. Are you looking for the Swedish Dala horse, lingonberries, Swedish cookies, Scandinavian jewelry, items for the Scandinavian home and kitchen, or traditional Swedish souvenirs and handicrafts? We have all that and much, much more.
"Hemslöjd" (pronounced hem-sloyd) is Swedish for handicraft. Throughout Sweden you'll find small hemslöjd shops where all sorts of Swedish crafts are made and sold. In our workshop in Lindsborg, Kansas you can watch our craftsmen at work in our woodshop or browse through our great selection of Scandinavian gifts in the gift shop.
Among our many Scandinavian items, we offer traditional Dala Horses direct from Sweden. Over the years the hand carved and painted Dala Horse has become a symbol of authentic Swedish handicraft and one of Sweden's most popular souvenirs.
In addition, we handcraft Dala Horse Signs for your home! A Dala Horse sign is a great way to show your "Swedishness!" Since 1984, Hemslöjd has handcrafted personalized Dala Horse signs for homes and businesses all around the world. These handmade dala horse signs come with display chains and screw eyes.
