A Swedish Home - where "Scandi" meets "Eco".
Who says rag rugs have to be dark, multicoloured and boring? We don't!
With experience living in both the UK and Sweden, we decided to offer a range of Swedish and Scandinavian rugs based on the old traditional style of "trasmattor" but updated by modern young Swedish designers to suit today's homes. We offer styles to suit a wide range of homes from ultra modern to Grade II listed period properties.
In our selection you will find a range of neutral and pale coloured rugs offering typical Scandinavian cool together with rather a lot of striped rugs, which are very popular all over Scandinavia. With offices based near the sea in Suffolk and family on the Baltic coast, it is inevitable that a lot of our rugs will have a nautical or seaside theme and we make no apology for that.
We try and follow the ecological theme adopted by the Swedes. Did you know that Sweden recycles more than any other country on earth? So our rugs are made of natural fabrics, such as cotton, (recycled wherever possible), jute and recycled leather and the newest and most exciting innovation of all: rugs and throws made from PET yarn, which is yarn made from recycled plastic bottles. It really feels so soft and silky, you would be forgiven for thinking it was wool!
In addition, we offer table linens from world famous Ekelund - master weavers since the 16th Century whose company has remained in the same family to this day. Their products are produced almost exclusively from organic cotton and woven in their state of the art factory in Horred Sweden, one of the most ecological factories in the world. They even trap their own rainwater for use in the production process!
Finally how about a gift of an authentic Dala horse, made from sustainable pine, hand painted by Swedish craftsmen working for Grannas? They are a family business which started in 1922 and still hand produce every horse in the same way as when the company started. Every horse is hallmarked so that the company knows which artisan carved each horse and who painted it.
