Ingrid in stripes

In preparation for our 125th anniversary in 2016, we have developed Ingrid in Stripes, inspired by the rag rugs which have been used on Swedish floors since the mid-19th Century. Used fabrics from clothes and household items were cut into long ribbons which were then woven into striped, multi-coloured rugs. In the 1960s and 1970s, domestic arts and crafts enthusiasts started producing rag rugs with more distinct patterns and designs. Ingrid in Stripes lends a modern expression to traditional Swedish weaving, creating something which is equally at home in a city apartment or in a rural cottage.

Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg

Between 1987 – 2015, Gunilla Lagerhielm Ullberg, was the Lead Designer of Kasthall. She has designed most of Kasthall’s classic collections, such as Moss, Fogg, Häggå and Tekla, and she has been awarded numerous prestigious design accolades – most recently the Elle Decoration “Designer of the Year” award in Sweden. 

During Gunilla’s 28 years at Kasthall, she played a significant role in driving the designer brand forward and is often referred to as ‘The Queen of Rugs'. In December 2015, she passed away after a hard fought battle with cancer.  Gunilla will always be a significant part of Kasthall and her timeless designs will remain relevant for generations to come.
