The stories we weave
For 50 years, our scissors have been a part of the fabric of life for creators all over the world. Here are some of their stories.
“I think I was 26 when I bought my first Orange handles. It has been a while, and I am still in love!”Liz O
“I really can’t remember when I got started using Fiskars, but it seems like these have always been part of my art career (since 1970!). I have different pairs for different materials and uses (paper, fabric, plants, kitchen & small pointy ones.) I love these scissors.”Karen Stahlecker
“I was 19 and they were a gift from my mom. Still have them 40 years later.”Jean
“Superior product and as a kid that orange meant, don’t ever get caught using them on paper. Moms fabric shears ONLY!”Thomas Wall
“Fiskars is really THE classic standard scissors…My Fiskars scissors I have in my studio, I am very protective of them.”Laura Ljungkvist
“I have ’em all….from kids’ scissors, to different length cutting shears, to pinking shears, to pruning shears….but the most precious ones to me are the pink-handled cutting shears, in commemoration of breast cancer awareness….thank you Fiskars for 50 wonderful years…here’s to 50 more!”Kathie Karagiannopoulos
