The history of Almedahls

Almedahls, a gem in Swedish textile history, traces its origins back to the late 1830s when Hans H Wesslau took over a dyeing and bleaching facility facing financial difficulties, employing around twenty workers.

In 1846, the birth of Almedahls occurred as Hans H Wesslau founded the company with a focus on the production of linen fabrics. Already in the following year, 1847, Almedahls demonstrated its commitment to society by constructing housing and a primary school for the factory workers and their families. These efforts included free medical care, complimentary medicine, accident insurance, and a pension and burial fund.

The success of Almedahls was evident as the company grew rapidly, and by 1848, the number of employees had increased to 83, and sales had doubled. In the years 1857 and 1862, the company received several awards for its high quality at the world exhibitions in Paris and London.

At the turn of the century in 1900, Almedahls and Jonsereds Fabriker jointly accounted for 50% of Sweden's production of linen products. Despite challenges during wartime, Almedahls demonstrated resilience and the ability to overcome adversities.

In 1955 marked a new era for Almedahls when they collaborated with the renowned designer Astrid Sampe and NK's Textilkammare – a venture into modern linen storage. This collaboration led to the creation of modern design lines, where creativity and design flourished.

In 1958, the headquarters relocated from Gothenburg to Dalsjöfors and then, in 2005, to Kinna, situated 45 minutes outside Gothenburg. This strategic move reaffirms Almedahls' ongoing adaptation and commitment to remaining a leading force in the Swedish textile industry.

Almedahls' impressive history attests to a long and successful journey, where societal commitment and a constant pursuit of quality and innovation have shaped the company's evolution. With over 175 years of experience, Almedahls continues to shine brightly in the Swedish textile landscape.
