The story of Grannas today
The production of Dala horses at Grannas today is a peculiar mixture of a genuine hand craft and serious production. In 1939 just over 20,000 Dala horses were produced –nowadays approximately 100,000 are produced each year, with only a couple of planers and three band saws. Visitors are surprised when they see the production volume the company has in comparison to the number of machines and how much hand work is put into the making of each horse. Every Dalahorse is "double" unique - they can identify the carver and the painter!
