HELPING TO CREATE A BETTER LIFE

Creating it yourself is important to you. We’re here to help.

There’s a special magic in giving of yourself. When something created with your own hands touches those close to you, you’ve created a moment that enriches life. Those moments echo back into your soul as a sense of pride and achievement, but also as something deeper, something that lives between love and art and defies words. For all the moments that truly matter, large and small, Fiskars is here to help. 

PASSION FOR DESIGN & INNOVATION

Thoughtful functionality, ease of use, timeless aesthetic and lasting quality. The hallmark of our brand.

Our tools are made better and designed smarter — so you can work better and smarter. The essence of our product design philosophy is a concept we call empowering simplicity. We combine the four principles of thoughtful functionality, ease of use, simple design aesthetic and lasting quality. It’s our belief that all things, even the simplest, can be made better and smarter.®

ORIGINS OF ORANGE

Discover the icon that redefined the way the world thought about scissors.

In 1967, Fiskars revolutionized the way the world thought about scissors. Not only were our orange-handled scissors lighter, more comfortable and easier to handle than heavy forged scissors, they also delivered an amazing leap in cutting performance. This caused many home seamstresses to declare them off limits to the rest of the family — they were only for cutting fabric, only for projects that were truly special. Since then, our orange-handled scissors have become the standard of quality worldwide, selling over 1 billion.

Today, the revolution continues with Fiskars® Amplify® Mixed Media Shears and RazorEdge™ Premium Fabric Shears.

SCANDINAVIAN ROOTS. ENDURING SOUL

With over 100 permanent resident artists and designers, the village is a hub of creativity, innovation and design.
