The most iconic Fiskars design is without question the pair of Fiskars scissors with orange handles. The design was first launched in 1967 and has since then been sold over one billion times. So why did the handle end up being orange? The original prototype was produced with an orange handle to “use up” orange colour that was left over from other productions. After the production of a number of different colours, the orange color was voted as the most popular and was taken into production. A good choice! The orange pair of scissors is a true Fiskars design classic.
