Kasthall – Celebrating 125 years of passionate craftsmanship You have to admire a company that is celebrating 125 years of making outstanding quality rugs with a great wealth of patterns and a beauty that is rarely bestowed.

Actually, being unique is not that hard In an increasingly standardised world in which products are mass produced, painstaking handwork is more and more rare. However, this is what we represent: time for reflection, a longer perspective. We design collections of woven and hand tufted rugs that we can then tailor to your desires and needs. This gives you endless possibilities in terms of colour, pattern and size. No rug that leaves our factory is like any other. This is explained not only by its unique design but also by our methods of manufacture. »In our factory we combine high tech and...

To make an individual rug we work as a team How are the forms and colours of a rug developed? Our in-house designers work full time to experiment with and refine our designs, but we also invite some of the most talented architects and designers from the international arena to work with us. And yet, the answer isn’t really that simple. Each rug is a creative process that combines different impressions into one idea. Our designers keep their ears tuned to the desires of the customer, their eyes on what’s happening in art, fashion and architecture, and their fingers deep in the factory’s...

The finest rugs – made of nature’s finest Every time we finish a rug, it is numbered and marked with the names of the designer and weaver or tufter – and the client, if desired. This certificate, written on a leather label, is the ultimate proof that the rug has passed through our entire chain of manufacture with the highest grades. If it isn’t completely perfect, we start over. Having said that, this doesn’t mean that all perfect rugs look the same. »Our rugs are not artificial. Every thread, every ball of yarn is treated as if it were a living thing,« says Peter Otell, head of quality...

our history is woven into each rug We are immensely proud of our history, and we hope that our rugs show this. The quality speaks for itself and is what ultimately matters most to our customers. Yet to fully understand our passion for rugs, you should know we have a legacy to live up to that’s been built year after year, rug after rug, by the fine-tuned craftsmanship of hundreds of hands. It all began in 1889 with Ludvig Andersson, an entrepreneur and designer. When electricity was first introduced, he established a business called Kasthall in the small town of Kinna in the middle of...

To weave is to look both back in time and forward Weaving is a craft that has occupied humans for thousands of years. The concept is simple: two perpendicular rows of threads, the warp and the weft, are interlaced. This may be the most beautiful aspect of weaving. Simplicity is the key, and the results are timeless and durable. While the basic concept is simple, we have refined the technique. Step by step, over many decades, we have refined the art to create more exciting, advanced and unique rugs. Our woven rugs are mainly made of yarn that we make ourselves from the finest natural...

Hand tufted rugs – As beautiful as you can imagine Tufting provides a multitude of possibilities in terms of patterns and forms. We can create any motif or shape that is desired or imagined. Our tufters, like our weavers, must possess a high level of craftsmanship at every stage of creating a hand tufted rug. Once the rug is tufted, we roll up our sleeves and make sure it meets the high level of quality we demand. Short piles are sheared so that the pile is even and beautiful. On rugs with longer pile, tufts that are too long are trimmed by hand. This way we find the individual character in...
