The Trollmall is operated by Brødrene Flaarønning as, a Norwegian family company developing products related to Norwegian nature, culture and traditions. Brødrene Flaarønning as was established in 1868, and is located in the country village Ler 30 km. south of Trondheim (the third biggest city in Norway).
The collections you find in the Trollmall are based on assortment of Brødrene Flaarønning and presented as individual shops.
The trolls are a very important part of Norwegian and Scandinavian history and mythology. They are thousands of years old, but you can still sometimes see them in the woods when darkness sets in. They are however very shy, so nobody can agree exactly how they look.
The artist Trygve Torgersen created our first trolls back in the early 1960’s and the Ny Form trolls have since become the very essence of what a troll looks like.
Visitors to Norway buy our trolls as the most genuine symbol of Norwegian history, mythology and nature. But our figurines have also become very popular international collectors’ items and are sold all over the world to people appreciating the artistic qualities and the “good vibration” from the trolls.
We have a big selection of various trolls, clearly the same family, but as varied in shape and mood as any other family. There are over 140 different trolls in production today, and more than 200 trolls that are out of production but still sometimes available at collectors’ markets.
After 55 years the trolls are still made in the same way as Trygve created his first trolls. Every troll is made by hand with natural materials. The main ingredient is natural latex from rubber trees, making them almost unbreakable.
The natural materials will age and gives the trolls an aging patina you won’t find in modern products.
For many people the trolls are a good luck item that is filling your home with good vibrations. “Take care of the trolls, and the trolls will take care of you!”
The JOPO line is made from real moose leather from free roaming moose. The leather comes from moose wandering the vast woods and plains in northern Scandinavia. The hunting is done by local farmers and hunters to keep the population in check. Strictly regulated by the government. So, our leather is one of the most sustainable leather products available.
The products are carefully crafted by the highest quality standards to give you a product that can last a lifetime.
We also have a line of JOPO products where we combine the moose leather with canvas, to create a rougher style.

The Marius-sweater was designed in 1953 by Unn Søiland. The Marius pattern quickly became the best-selling hand-knitted pattern in Norway. Today, sweaters, mittens, hats, and all things knitted are being hand crafted in cottages and homes all over Norway. The hand-knitting renaissance has only increased the popularity of the pattern.
The pattern is closely related to Norwegians love for the outdoors; Skiing, hiking and spending time in nature is an ingrained part of Norwegian life, and the Marius pattern is there. In the very middle of the Norwegian folk-soul.
