GRÖNSKA COLLECTION

Ilse Crawfords collection, called Grönska, drew inspiration from the Swedish landscape around the Kasthall factory in Kinna, Västergötland. When Ilse Crawford visited the factory for the first time and saw the surrounding meadows and fields, she was inspired to create Grönska. The collection was developed both as a tribute to the life, colours, patterns and textures of the Swedish landscape, and to address the general desire to bring more green into our interiors.

The design collaboration, which began in spring 2017, consists of three woven rugs, Fåra, Glänta and Ängmark, as well as the hand-tufted rugs Täppa and Åker. Crawford and her team, in collaboration with Kasthall Design Studio, explored different weaving and tufting techniques in order to reflect the rythm, irregularity, and diverse tones of the different types of landscapes throughout the year. These qualities are infused into the rugs – and in turn into the homes and public spaces where we live and spend time. 

ÅKER -LIMITED EDITION

Åker is a limited edition tufted rug with horizontal block stripes of different textures, colors and techniques. It demonstrates a range of tuft types in each of its stripes – cut and loop pile, cut pile and bouclé pile, and uses a mixture of linen, wool and mélange yarns. The blocks work together to conceptualize the textures and colors found in farmland that surround the Kasthall factory in a beautiful and abstract way.

ÄNGSMARK

Ängsmark is a thin and light hand woven rug interspersed with lines of chenille that create a rhythm and pattern. The design uses over dyed mélange yarns, specially developed for the Grönska collection, to bring subtle depth and variations in color like those found within the fields and meadows of Sweden. The mélange yarn is twisted with fine white hair yarn which appears randomly over the surface and adds to the effect. Ängsmark is available in four colors reflecting the changing seasons.

FÅRA

Fåra is a hand woven rug that uses a newly developed bouclé yarn in pure wool with a beautiful irregular quality, woven in stripes to expose the wool base.

TÄPPA

Täppa is a soft and tactile hand tufted rug of wool and linen that uses a special technique combining cut and loop pile. This renders Täppa a soft, shimmering but sturdy surface. As the wool yarns create a block of rich color, and the linen yarn creates the pattern, they appear in natural shades like seedlings that have just sprouted. Täppa is available in four colors reflecting the changing seasons.

GLÄNTA

The hand woven quality of Glänta is achieved using a thick chenille yarn, where its natural lusture provides warmth and softness underfoot. It is woven in such a way that it reveals the structure of the weft yarn beneath, to give the rug a beautiful irregularity and the impression of light flecks of earth peeking out from within a glade. Glänta is available in four colors reflecting the changing seasons.
