Virvel

One action-packed, rhythmic rug sketch piqued the enthusiasm of the design team. It was probably more than fifty years old, but it felt modern, as if someone had wielded the brush today. Still, the pattern’s designer remained a mystery. Peter Otell, one of the company’s product developers, refused to give up. Like a true detective, he studied the style and design, and he made comparisons. He found other sketches using the same method to render figures, which is how it was discovered that Ulla Ericson-Åström (1922–2002) had held the pen. Originally designed as a wall-to-wall carpet sometime in the 1950s, the pattern has now been hand tufted in Kasthall’s Moss quality, and named “Virvel” (Swirl). Moss, with its unruly yarn pile and protruding wool and linen threads, gives the rug an expressive, audacious character.
