Frequently asked questions

General Questions

Where are Daladräkt’s products made?

We make our products in Sweden and in the Baltic countries. You can find the ‘Made in’ information on each garment in the product information label. Our products, material and suppliers are chosen with great care and strict control.

How are Daladräkts made?

We work actively towards sustainability when we choose our materials and suppliers. Small family-owned companies situated in Dalecarlia make many of the details on our costumes by hand. They have made weaves and brooches in the same way for generations.
Our garments are quality-made, meant to last for a long time. We believe in working against over-consumption and towards slow fashion.
We also collaborate with Livslust in Latvia, a vocational school which makes many of our beautiful garments.

How many Dala Costumes are there?

Every region in Dalecarlia has its own kind. They are very different from each other, and often easy to tell apart.

Why do you only sell costumes from the area around lake Siljan?

We started with the production of the costumes Catarina wore when growing up, but we are expanding our production on other designs as well. They will be coming soon, so stay tuned for more products to add to your collection!

Will you sell costumes from parts of Sweden, other than Dalecarlia?

We certainly hope so! If you sign up for our newsletter, we will update you on our newest and upcoming products.
