In 1890 the Johansson family emigrated from the south of Sweden to the small town of Lillerød 40 km outside Copenhagen. They established Lillerød basket factory, hoping to spread their love of the baskets to the citizens of Denmark, and to find a community in the small town. They succeeded in both.

The philosophy was to create beautiful and useful objects for everyday use, only by means of the materials that the woods provided.

 

For many years the factory provided a living for the family and their friends and was the focus point for the life and love of generations.

In 1970 the family had to acknowledge that the use of plastic bags had outgrown the baskets as means of transportation, and the production was discontinued until now.
