Snikki TOOL BELTS

Swedens’ first tool belt

The craftsmen of today and all you tool belt lovers out there have Bengt Fyhr to thank for this great way of carrying around your tools. It was he who in the 1960’s got the brilliant idea to wear a practical tool belt for nails and tools instead of carrying them in his pockets. His colleagues were immediately interested and with the increased demand for the invention, sales quickly picked up. The belt was named SNIKKI and Sweden’s first tool belt was born.

INNOVATION AND GENUINE CRAFTSMANSHIP  

The brand SNIKKI is owned by Fristads and the production and product development still take place in Dalecarlia in Sweden where it all once started. Here, 17 employees are working with the most ergonomic and high quality tool belts you can find on the market. Much of the production is traditionally made by hand and requires great craftsmanship. The leather used comes from Tärnsjö in Sweden and is a vegetable tanned leather with both people and the environment in mind.

Bengt Fyhr is still involved in the product development. Together with Fauna’s designer he makes sure the SNIKKI products fit modern tools and fulfil the customers’ needs. All products are tested and tried by real craftsmen for about 6 months before they are taken into production and the feedback is used to evaluate and make improvements on the products. The close relationship with the end user is an important part of SNIKKI’s success.
