2012 is a special year for Fiskars as we celebrate the 45th anniversary of our Original Orange-Handled Scissors™. First introduced in 1967 as a top-quality scissors, our Orange-Handled Scissors redefined the standard for comfort, quality and cutting precision. Not only was our innovative new design much lighter and more comfortable than forged scissors, the cutting performance was so good it forced many a home seamstress to declare the scissors off limits.
When Helsinki was chosen as the World Design Capital for 2012, Fiskars was honored to be named an official partner of the event. Fiskars will have a special place of prominence in the World Design Capital, not far from where our company got its start 363 years ago. As we honor our past, we’ll also be looking forward to creating more great products that make doing the activities you love a little easier and a lot more rewarding. Visit the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 website to view the year-long program of design-inspired events and see how Fiskars is participating in this special event.
Fiskars is a leading brand that provides functional, user-friendly and lasting design solutions for hand tools and beyond. Fiskars products respond to genuine inspiration and drive to get the job done well in the most effortless and intuitive way.
Established in 1649, Fiskars is the oldest company in Finland. We have worked with tools, cutting and steel forging ever since we first started operating 360 years ago. Our roots are in the Fiskars Village, an idyllic center of art and design, where modern aesthetics meet old crafting traditions. Fiskars launched the world’s first plastic-handled scissors in 1967. Since then, these orange scissors have sold more than 1 billion pieces worldwide and their iconic status has resulted in Fiskars orange being synonymous with scissors across the world. Fiskars is the world’s number one scissor brand.
Fiskars Orange® is an important part of our identity. Orange Handled Scissors are a registered trademark of Fiskars Corporation. The orange color came about partly by chance when our iconic scissors were designed in 1967. The prototype handle was created using orange resin left over in a molding machine used to produce an orange juicer. The final decision on color was decided by a vote. Orange defeated black by nine votes to seven. As of now, we have sold over 1 billion!
