Dala Horse Bracelet on Howlite
Dala History & Lore
The Swedish Dala Horse is a traditional symbol for the country of Sweden. It originated in cities and villages in Dalarna, in Central Sweden. Hand carved during the winters by men working in forests, they were given to small children when they returned home. This is when these wooden horse became treasures. Later, they were painted in the vivid colors and patterns of the Dalarna region and take on the appearance we know today. At one time these colorful carvings were used as currency by traveling salesmen from Dalarna, and as a way for the poor to trade for food. Over time the Dala Horse image made its way throughout Sweden and became a popular folk symbol for the entire country.
