Hand tufted in India in New Zealand wool, woolsilk and tencel mix.
Hand tufted rugs should not be confused with machine-made tufted rugs. Hand tufting is a traditional method, which requires a high level of craftsmanship. Our rugs are entirely made by hand: the yarn is hand dyed, tufted by hand with a small mechanical tool and finally sheared, using hand held scissors. No electricity is used.
At Asplund, when we strive to create carpets that are stylish and durable enough to be passed on for generations, only the finest materials and techniques are good enough. Our carpets are woven, knotted or tufted by hand, by skilled craftsmen.
Handcrafting makes each carpet unique, like a piece of art. We use superior quality New Zealand wool as primary material. The wool is rich in natural fats that give the carpets a beautiful luster while also providing good protection against stains. In some designs we add fine materials like silk or tencel, for a characteristic look and feel.
Available in the standard colors.

Tom Dixon, born in Tunisia in 1959, is an internationally recognized British designer. He began his studies at Chelsea College of Art and Design but dropped out before graduating. There followed a most atypical course. He becomes a guitarist in a rock group and works in a nightclub at night. During the day, he learned to weld in a garage.
His career began with the creation of recycled metal furniture and sculptures which he recovered in the port of Chelsea. Twenty years later, he became artistic director of the Habitat firm, and embodied the success of a self made man. Meanwhile, his S-chair has made him a recognized designer. At the head of his own firm, he creates objects in a neo-industrial spirit which reflects his taste for raw materials and craftsmanship.
His creations earned him the prize for designer of the year Maison & Objet in 2014. His works have also entered several museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the MoMA in New York and the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris. At the same time, he has been an honorary doctor of the University of Birmingham since 2004 and of the University of the Arts in London since 2007.
