The original since 1976

The story of the original and unique Trollbeads starts in Denmark. Trollbeads is born as a family company and still today it remains so. “Some have ideas, some have talent for design, some can find technical solutions and others still have the courage to make it happen. And all of us enjoy working together on a project. It’s that simple”, says Lise Aagaard.
