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.

Studio Claesson Koivisto Rune
Claesson Koivisto Rune
Consistent, elegant and progressive. Claesson Koivisto Rune is perhaps the most internationally acclaimed Swedish architect and design studio. Even their graduation piece, a tiny Japanese house placed on the most central square in Stockholm, hit the design world like a bomb – receiving great attention both at home and abroad.
Initially Claesson Koivisto Rune was said to be minimalist. But trying to describe the company, you soon discover that when you’ve finally found the right adjective, it no longer applies. The trio’s work is an upwards and forwards movement, heading for something as yet undiscovered. “Without any clear direction” they’ve said themselves. And yet they work consistently and in the tradition of Jacobsen and Aalto, with architecture, furniture and product design that together forms an entirety.
Eero Koivisto was born in 1958, Ola Rune in 1963 and Mårten Claesson in 1970. They met studying interior architecture and founded their studio in 1995. They have created about ten pieces for Swedese – all with a distinctive sense of consistency, elegance and progression.
