Welcome to Vandra Rugs. We are a weaving atelier offering the highest quality hand-woven rugs in natural materials. Our rugs are luxurious and have a strong sense of craftmanship. All rugs are customized, made to order in the material, pattern and size you like. Vandra Rugs originates from the company EMTE Textil, founded in the 1940’s by Edna Martin and Marit Thorén. Barbro Thessing took over the company in the 1980’s and developed the production. Today we produce all rugs at our weaving atelier in Southern Ukraine, offering work opportunities to women in this poor rural area. Currently some 35 weavers are involved in production and the atelier has become one of the region’s most important exporters to the west. Welcome to visit any of our carefully selected retailers or our showroom in Stockholm.

The design SNOW & COAL was inspired by a black and white photograph of my grandparents from 1917 in the warm morning light with the fresh snow in Dalarna.
