The history of SNS Herning begins modestly. During the 1920s, Soren Nielsen Skyt, made his living knitting garments for Danish fisherman. But it is in 1931 that SNS Herning really blossomed. Understanding the lifestyle and burdens of a fisherman, Skyt developed the "bubble knit", a knitting technique to protect against the cold northern elements and provide greater insulation for warmth.
There is no doubt that SNS Herning's sweaters not only endures the conditions of colder climates, but also the effects of time having little variation in style since the very beginning. While the wearer can feel confident about both the classic aesthetic and quality that appeals beyond the appreciation of a fisherman, SNS Herning continues to use its original processes maintaining its utmost quality.
SNS Herning's name is the conflation of the founder's initials, Soren Nielsen Skyt, and the name of the town, Herning, in which the garments are made.
