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.

Johan Ridderstråle Mats Broberg
Broberg & Ridderstråle is a design and architecture studio founded by Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle. Both of them are interior architects and designers and both of them graduated from the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Sweden, in 2006. Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle are creative collaborators based in Stockholm, Sweden, working in a mixed architecture and design practice.
They strive to add an emotional value to their design which communicates with the user through recognition of symbols and meanings. They often draw inspiration from the everyday life and try to combine a rational approach with a dash of humour and wit. One of the most famous products they designed is Plugged pendant lamp for Muuto. The Plugged pendant lamp plays with the elements most lighting armatures try to hide. It emphasizes how the lamp is “brought to life” thereby giving it character and difference. The space between the shade and the ceiling is highlighted by the pattern of the textile cord - and the placing of the plug on the side gives the lamp a dynamic appearance and brings life to an otherwise static typology. The concave diffuser adds to the freshness with the infinite sensation you get, when looking into the lamp. Broberg & Ridderstråle have received several awards for their designs, including the Elle Interior Design Prize and the Design Plus Award.
