Knitted sweater in wool or polyester swim shorts from Brallor.
A Lusekofte, or setesdals sweater, as it is sometimes called among our neighbors in the far more wealthy west, is a traditional Norwegian garment that dates back all the way to the 19th century. We have chosen to turn this classic piece, Lusekofte, into a slightly more summerlike and tropical version while trying to keep its iconic pattern intact. If we managed to do so? That's in the eyes of the beholder.
Did you know that the name Lusekofte origins from the famous lice pattern in knitting, with individual stitches that look like small lice? Fortunately, our swim shorts are completely free of lice and also isn't scratchy on the skin like a lice shirt so often can be. What many people do not know is that the most popular pattern on the cardigans is actually knitted by the Norwegian slalom skater and Olympic gold medalist Marius Eriksen's mother, Bitten Eriksen. Bitten is also the name of a fantasy series featuring vampires. Kind of like Twilight but really shitty. We would not recommend it to you nor would we recommend it to our worst enemy, Biltema.
