At Filcolana we are proud of being devoted to quality, sustainability, and responsibility. Shipping of the yarn to our warehouse is done with care for the environment, with a modern, sustainable, and responsible shipping operation. From our warehouse, we distribute our yarns to our retailers in Scandinavia and the rest of the world.
We develop the colour range for our yarns. The dyeing materials are made according to EU standards and comply to all regulations and guidelines for textile chemicals and respect for the environment.
Filcolana patterns are created by some of the most talented knit- and crochet designers in Scandinavia. Some are well established on the Nordic knitting scene; others are just in the beginning of their design careers. It is important for us that the designers get the opportunity to unfold their creativity, and we do everything we can to support them in their creative process.
We reuse most packaging – for instance we use the boxes from the spinning mills, when shipping orders to your local Filcolana retailer. The main part of our printed products is produced at certified Nordic Swan Ecolabel printing houses in Denmark.
Filcolana’s history goes all the way back to 1952. Filcolana has been owned by different families throughout the years. In 2009 Nanna Gudmand-Høyer took over and has been running it since with the help of talented employees.¨
