Sweden is a country of Vikings, descendents of Odin, conquerors, travellers – a harsh land with unbelievably pure virgin nature. Thousands of lakes and rivers, woods and rocky mountains create a truly magical scenery which will easily take you to the age of Scandinavian myths inhabited by fairytale creatures.
There is a legend of a fisherman who wanted to marry a mermaid. When he caught her in pure waters of a lake, he accidentally wounded her with a harpoon. The mermaid escaped, diving deep into the water. The fisherman waited for his bride to appear again for a very long time, when suddenly water started to glow with beautiful colours, changing from white to gentle pink, looking like a pearly inside part of a seashell. Waves started to hit the lakeshore, and it started to bloom and spread wonderful scents. Soft light rose above them, and the lakeshore became unimaginably beautiful. Since then, lake fish has been the source of life force, and birds have been giving the warmth of their down feather to the people of Sweden, helping them to keep warm in cold and hostile weather. And since then, anyone who sees the shores of Sweden is sure to fall in love with them.
In Sweden the duck symbolises warmth, as today eider duck down feather is considered as the best insulating material having the lowest heat conductivity coefficient. Gathering and processing of eider duck down feather is now an integral part of production industry. No wonder that the famous traveller and anthropologist Thor Heyerdahl preferred clothes with eider duck down feather, as he has encountered extreme temperature conditions on many occasions.
At present the population of Sweden is 9 million people. The number of individual houses (for one family) is approximately 1.6 million, including summer houses. Approximately 350,000 houses are heated using heat pumps of different types, including those proudly wearing the Nord Duck logo.
