One of the local designers that I really like is Jumperfabriken. Their niche is high quality sweaters, inspired by vintage looks. I plan to buy one of these sweaters for fall, but I can't decide - I want them all! Also if this is something for you, their webshop sells to plenty of countries. Here is an interview that I did with them two years ago (in Swedish, but at least you can look at the pictures!).
