Røros Tweed – high quality pillows and throws since 1940
The Norwegian woolen blanket weaving mill is located on the homonymous mountain town Røros in the southeast of central Norway close to the Swedish border. The town is the onliest Norwegian mountain town (height 630 m) and was once one of the most important mining towns in Norway. The town was founded in the 17th century after the copper ore was discovered. The ore was mined for over 300 years in Røros. Of course, the foundation of the wool weaving mill is also connected with the important industry for the town. The director of the copper hut Peder Hiort has left his fortune to a foundation for the poor by his will. The foundation bought wool from the capital which was then processed in homework by hired hand to clothes. After completion, the homeworkers got their wages and the finished clothes were distributed to the poor. Many of the wage labor were among the poor and also received clothing from the foundation. Until today, the foundation of Peder Hiort is still one of the most helpful foundational ideas of Scandinavia.
