Making history since 1869

Like all projects big and small, the need for change inspired our beginning. In 1689 a royal arms factory was born in Huskvarna, Sweden. Almost two centuries later in 1872, facing declining demand for firearms, the artisans of the factory were inspired to make a more peaceful product—sewing machines. Today, Husqvarna Viking® is a worldwide organization that still designs high-quality sewing machines in Sweden and markets our products to passionate sewers all across the globe.
