Santa clauses, gnomes and trolls

For many years, the internationally renowned Söderhälltomte and Älvkarlebytroll have been manufactured in the site workshop. The santa clauses, gnomes and trolls are made in the same way today. Make a visit and see how the production goes. You can buy your own sample in the shop.

The associated copper lamps are also manufactured here. They are made entirely by hand in copper plates, just the way they have always been made. The lamps are equipped with beautiful glass and have electric lighting that illuminates the winter darkness.
