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.

Mattias Stenberg is a Swedish designer and a graduate of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Mattias approaches design from a holistic perspective, relating architectural environments to the human form and making mass-produced objects feel tactile and handcrafted. Since establishing his studio in 2010, Mattias has produced an impressive range of furniture and designs he describes as ‘everyday objects’; yet, the products he creates are anything but. The soft carpets, tactile furniture, smooth glassware and chic lighting Mattias designs have a distinctively industrial aesthetic while being inviting and accessible. This approach is reflected in the range of Ottoman seating Mattias designed for Northern. They, too, resonate with comfort, welcoming and warmth.
