So what’s the connection between Fiskars scissors and the village?

Fiskars village was founded in 1649, and that was the start of the Fiskars brand, today famous for it’s quality tools and orange color. In the beginning the ironworks main function was to produce iron, and later on, during the 19th century when Johan Jacon Julin (later von Julin) was the owner of the ironworks village, the focus shifted to refining iron. New production facilities were built in the village and Fiskars started making tools, knifes, scissors and cutlery. In 1883 Fiskars became a limited company and today it employs over 6000 people in 30 countries and owns the brands Fiskars, Gerber, Iittala, Royal Copenhagen, Waterford, and Wedgwood. Fiskars is listed at Nasdaq Helsinki.

The orange-handled scissors where born in 1967, in the village.
