BA in Industrial Design at UiD, Umeå.
Worked as a designer at LEGO, Denmark 1999-2001.
Designed patterns for textiles and other products 2003 - 2015. Working as an interior designer at Sweco Architects.
My style is playful, simple and often inspired by nature.
Africa is inspired by Jugend/Art Nouveau, but in a more naive way. On this carpet, old ladies can have their afternoon tea, or children play with wood blocks around the elephants. Simply suitable for all environments.
Africa Handtufted Rug - Grey / Blue carpet from India.
Handtufted carpets are made by hand using high quality raw materials, but rather than having knots that need to be tied, a special ”tufting gun” is used to push loops of yarn through a scrim (pre-woven backing). The last stage in the production is trimming the pile to the desired length, thereby exposing the thread ends for a softer pile.
This technique allows for a quick and effective process and gives the weaver more freedom and range to create detailed patterns and shapes otherwise restricted in handknotted carpets. The end result is a long lasting high quality carpet at an affordable price.
Wool is a natural textile fibre and one of the most sought after materials for rug making. Wool rugs are highly durable and perfectly capable of resisting wear and tear of every day use. Wool has a naturally dirt-repelling effect and is easy to keep clean. It is also flame resistant and characteristically retains it’s shape so that the pile of the rug always rises.
Care & Fair
We are proud to be part of the organization CARE & FAIR. Their mission is to improve the living conditions of carpet weavers in India and their families through education and health
All our machine-knotted rugs from Turkey are certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, a globally uniform and independent testing- and certification system for textiles. The certification means that the finished product is free from hazardous chemicals.
Return made easy…
I purchased a rug which was delivered within one week. Unfortunately, the colour was not what I expected and I raised a return request. I received instructions on making a free return immediately. I spoke to a very helpful lady to make sure I was following the instructions correctly. The rug was collected by UPS and arrived at Rugvista 7 days later and my credit card was refunded. You only know how good a company really is when you make a return. Rugvista is 5 stars.
