A Creative Dynasty:
The Wallmansson’s Journey

Tracing the journey of creativity and innovation through generations, from their beginnings in Borås’s dynamic nightlife to leading the edge in digital commerce, by venturing into textile innovation and establishing a significant presence in Estonia as the Iron Curtain lifted.

Rooted in the entrepreneurial spirit that ignited within the vibrant nightlife of 1970s Borås, Sweden, the Wallmansson family embarked on an extraordinary journey. From the pulsating beats of discotheques to the forefront of the textile and fashion industry, they’ve masterfully woven a legacy that spans both time and geography. Their pioneering efforts expanded beyond Swedish borders, setting a strong foothold in Estonia, just as the Iron Curtain lifted, demonstrating their foresight and adaptability in seizing opportunities.

With a deep-seated passion for innovation and a keen eye for the evolving marketplace, the Wallmanssons transitioned from traditional textile manufacturing to dominating the digital commerce landscape. The crowning achievement in this saga was the development and nurturing of Svea, a brand that under their stewardship grew into a beacon of Swedish design and entrepreneurship.

This journey culminated in 2021 when Svea proudly became part of Boozt Fashion, a testament to the Wallmanssons’ dedication, strategic prowess, and the enduring value they created, celebrated by a partnership with a leading entity in the fashion industry.

Beyond fashion, the Wallmanssons have diversified their entrepreneurial ventures into a variety of sectors, including real estate and the stock market.

Notably, they established Atelier Smedjan on the Bjärehalvön in southern Sweden, which serves as a creative hub that embodies their commitment to fostering innovation and collaboration.

The Wallmansson narrative is not just a story of business acumen but a reflection of a family that continuously pushes boundaries, blending the artistry of traditional craftsmanship with the boundless potential of the digital age. Their journey from Borås to the global stage is a source of inspiration, showcasing a relentless pursuit of excellence and a visionary approach that has left an indelible mark on the industries they’ve touched.

“Innovation isn’t just about discovering new paths, but about creating them for those who follow.”
