On a Visit to Amanda Christensen

“I’m not selling a price, I sell quality” – That was the motto when a young Amanda Christensen started operations nearly 130 years ago in Stockholm and the company still works. Manolo was just passing Ulricehamn and took the opportunity to visit Amanda Christensen, Sweden today, perhaps the greatest accessory manufacturers of higher quality. We got a review of the brand’s great history and the opportunity to squeeze a little extra on the coming autumn products.

Company history really begins with a young Amanda moved to Stockholm in the early 1880s to study at teachers and thus leave rural poverty behind. When she first came to Stockholm, she lived with her brother and sister in law. She started with the sister in law to do extra work as a seamstress and made flies and cravats who was then in vogue in Stockholm. She quickly became very skilled at sewing flies and wanted to start their own. Then there was a very large Burgen class in Stockholm, where men wore flies and cravat, she saw a potential. Said and done, a first own studio was opened at Stora Nygatan 23 in the Old Town. The company did well as the fame of the high quality of Amanda’s product spread and she employee operating more seamstresses. She was a very popular employer and had salary agreement with the employee which was unusual at that time. She even allowed unionisation.

Although the company flourished Amanda felt unfairly treated by the male-dominated tygbranschen in Stockholm and sought out early abroad for the purchase of fabric. This meant that she had a new kind of inspiration was premature to take a continental European fashion to Stockholm. In time this led to Stockholm’s best herrekiperingar began to buy her products, and the company grew and could in turn move to new modern facilities with the latest technology regarding sewing machines.

An important year is 1949, when Amanda Christensen was purveyor, a sort of proof of the quality of the company could offer.

In the 1990s, chose the fourth generation Christensen to sell the company and it was then taken over by Jens Engvall came to move it to Ulricehamn where it remains today.

The company has 15 employees and sells all over the world even if it is the Nordic countries which are the primary market today.

Their focus is primarily accessories and foremost, ties, bow ties, handkerchiefs and scarves.However, expanded the company’s range all the time and they have been in recent times also added shirts, hats, belts and tweed jackets and caps.

We chose the visit to focus on their ties and shirts. One can divide their slips- and flugsortiment into two parts, one called the Never out of Stock and thus are constant in their range as well as a seasonal, more fashion-oriented part that follows the trends and seasons in a different way. We got a little extra impressed by the ties which the company sells under the so-called Black Collection. There is a greater variety when it comes to materials and appearance here. They have knitted from ullslipsar to lined the council idea, and various cashmere and silk / wool blends. The ties are made in Italy Como north of Milan and maintains a high level of quality and clean appearance, we must say that the company is getting better and better. Some of the ties we saw from the fall collection could well rangeb of a number of renowned Italian premium manufacturer.

Amanda Christensen is also now in his third season out of shirts. They lie in the price situation around 1000 SEK and manufactured in Turkey. There is a high level of detail on the shirts with fabrics from renowned manufacturers such as Albini, Monticello and Thomas Mason. They are sewn with singelsöm with at least 8 stitches per centimeter and has buttons of mother of pearl.

Below is a selection from the fall collection photographed by us on the spot.
