About this Exploration:
Hemslöjd (pronounced hem-sloyd) means "handicraft.” It seems appropriate that the Dala Horse was selected by the city of Lindsborg as its symbol of identity with Swedish customs. The practice of using a Dala Horse-shaped plaque at the entry of homes, bearing the address or family surname, was begun in Lindsborg by local artists. Today the Dala Horse is recognized as an unofficial symbol of Sweden throughout Swedish-America.
Hemslöjd, Inc. opened in 1984 at the north end of downtown Lindsborg, Kansas "Little Sweden, U.S.A." At their workshop they make, decorate and personalize Dala Horse-shaped signs. You are invited to watch the craftsmen at work. Open Monday-Saturday 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (7:30 p.m. during the summertime); Sunday 12:30 p.m.-5 p.m.
