Nils Olsson

The brothers Nils and Jannes Olsson were born into a poor family in Nusnäs, one of the villages in which the first Dala horses were made. In 1928, when they were only 13 and 15 years old, the brothers started their Dala horse factory.

 

They contributed to a cultural heritage that has also become the symbol of Sweden: the Dala horse. A symbol that is spread all over the world.

The horses are still carved by hand and the tradition and love of the craft is the same now as in 1928 when they started.
