    The dark spruce forest opens up. A glittering river and two large lakes meet. These lakes contained the gold of Småland – bog-iron ore. We can feel the tide of history, hear the rushing water and admire the result of hard work and durable parts. Since the Viking Age, this particular place has played an important role for many people.

During the 1600s, Huseby Bruk had the exclusive right to operate ironworks in Småland. The bog-iron ore from the lakes Åsnen and Salen was turned into solid commodities such as cannons and fireplaces. Iron goods were shipped further out in Europe via the seaways.

Princes. Admirals. Counts and countesses. There have been many owners and intrigues surrounding the estate throughout the hundreds of years that have passed. The surroundings breathe history. The buildings speak their own language – each with period-specific details and their own destiny.

A feeling of melancholy lies at the heart of the machinery. The furnace's darkness sneaks up on us, where the bog-iron ore was arduously melted into iron.  Darkness is mixed with dreams of life outside as the light is filtered through the beautiful window blinds.

Carved wooden steps lead us to the mechanical workshop, where iron was processed and ideas became reality. Craft made by a human hand is visible in every detail that was produced to be used over generations.

In Småland, nothing is taken for granted and thriftiness and using what nature has to offer parsimoniously is still deeply rooted in our way of thinking. Through Fabrikant, we continue the legacy by producing sustainable steel products made to last using great professional skills.

Fabrikant’s products live on as long as there are stories to tell.

    When looking for a place to photograph the ROOTS collection, we wanted a local place which, together with our products, could tell the story of our roots – the driving force of previous generations to make the impossible possible.
