vasa - our inspiration
''Vasacrafts Company is a modern initiative to preserve a precious activity - craftsmanship. Vasa or Wasa, as it was originally called, is the name of a war ship which is known not only in Sweden but all over the world as the most well preserved ship from the 17th Century. Vasa was the largest ship ever built at the time and was constituted as a symbol of strength of the Kingdom of Sweden in the battle towards Poland in 1625.
The ship was enhanced with 500 handmade sculptures to ledge and glorify the royal family's authority, wisdom and power as well as to frightening the enemies. Unfortunately Vasa did just like Titanic, sink during its maiden voyage. The reasons to why it became its first and last passage is not definite, but specialists claim that the total weight together with the many enrichment and canons were beyond the maximum capacity of what the ship was constructed to carry.
After 300 years of sleep on the bottom of the ocean, a large scale operation was conducted to bring Vasa up to meet the day light again. Now, what inspires us about this story is the will to preserve this national treasure that is much more than a ship - it is a result of great craftsmanship and national history. At Vasacrafts Company, we value the importance of making products that will be treasured many years after our time. To honor our history and to preserve the legacy, we strive to produce furniture that will be appreciated by the generations to come.''
