Fiskars

Fiskars
During the seventeenth century a number of ironworks were founded in Finland. Fiskars was started in 1649, and today is one of the oldest businesses in the western world. The orange-handled scissors are one of Fiskars' best known products, but why orange? In 1967 when the first basic models were about to be manufactured the designer wanted the scissors to be black, red or green. As the prototype went into production, the machinist decided to finish off the orange color he had in his machine. This meant prototypes were made in four different colors, of which the orange and black were most popular. A choice had to be made. An internal vote was taken at Fiskars, and the result gave birth to Fiskars orange-handled scissors. The color, Fiskars Orange™, was officially registered as a trademark in Finland in 2003 and in the US 2007. As well as scissors Fiskars is now famous for high quality craft tools and we have a range of our favourites in store.
