I am an illustrator and a graphic designer with a big interest in colour and design. Since 2010, I have my own company called Illustraform and combine freelancing and working with my own projects within illustration and design. My wish is to broaden my mind and also work with interior decoration products such as designing patterns and motives for textiles and wall paper. And, of course, carpets.

Sjöborre handtufted

“Sjöborre”(“Sea urchin”) is a carpet totally based on round forms, the outer edge as well as the smaller circles and the centre. The circles are however never strictly geometrical, and the distance between them varies as I wanted to obtain a sense of life and movement. The interaction between playfulness and strict forms is at the core, and I was inspired by objects I found on the beach.

Sjöborre handtufted - Grey 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.
