News! Designer rug TUVA
Designer rug Tuva by Maja Johansson Starander is both grounded and light. A calm of soft movements in a down-to-earth design. The linen warp and cotton weft in the carpet create a base of weaving tradition while the wavy pattern and airiness in the rya knots are reminiscent of nature’s movements of grass swaying in wind and ripples in water. These knots are laid by hand during the weaving process and offer a lively contrast to the weaving pattern. The fringes of linen warp are long for an elegant finish.
 
At home we like to incorporate the feeling from our holiday with our everyday life and we strive for surrounding us with both inspiration and serenity. We look at the environment where the rag rug often adorns the floor, as in the whitewashed stone house, in the artist’s studio, by the comfortable reading chair in the academic’s study. We walk through cobbled streets, through Slottsträdgården towards the salty sea, visit the Skissernas museum in Lund and look across the strait towards Glyptoteket in Copenhagen.The artist’s studio and the academic’s reading corner, where sculptures and paintings that mingle with clogs and clay jars, new and old, practical and decadent. The traditional Scandinavian gets a little more flair.
 
Tuva by Maja Johansson Starander is handwoven in cotton rags on linen yarn with rya in cotton and linen. It is offered in Botanic Beige combining brown and natural linen with cream, white and khaki in cotton strips and longer linen fringes. Available in size 200×300 cm and in bespoke sizes.
Designers Alba and Vera by Maja Johansson Starander

Growing up influenced by her grandparents home filled with art, Scandinavian Röllakan wallhangings, British wallpapers and craft and textiles from her grandmothers childhood in Ethiopia layed the foundation for a style both Scandinavian and global. After studies and work in Berlin, Copenhagen and London with a Master in woven textiles from Royal College of Art, Maja moved to Sweden to work with Gunilla Lagerhem Ullberg at Kasthall. Maja has since 2013 designed rugs and collections for Kasthall and world wide market in both tufted and woven qualities. She has worked in projects with designers and architect to create tailor-made solutions for the textile floors for spaces like restaurants, hotels, offices, fashion houses and their retail spaces.The source of inspiration is often textile tradition , archives and art while painting, creating and sampling on the loom is often the primary starting point for a new design.

Since 2020 Maja is working from her own studio to explore weaving and making further. She has designed two rugs for Vandra with a starting point in the color of their yarns and ability to freely hand weave.
The creative process was sketching in watercolour with blocks of lines and objects inspired by light through a window creating shadows in a room, tactile memories and a mix of stillness and movement. The result was Alba av Vera, two modern woven rugs in rödlakan technique.

Alba is a woven rug in Bordeaux, rust, beige and grayish lilac while Vera has shades of green, turquoise, grey, brown and vanilla.

CONTRACT FLAT
Most of our rugs may be used in contract interiors. However, when you need rugs that are hard-wearing enough for intense use with castor chairs we do recommend you to use our flat techniques, developed specially to withstand the wear of castor chairs. These rugs are woven by hand, with tightly spun wool yarn and with no visible linen warp. Lastly they are backed with latex. The rugs have obtained classification by testing FOR INTENSIVE USE  according to EU standard UNE-EN 14215:2013 and UNE-EN 985:2002 by AITEX Textile Research Studio. Most of our patterns may be translated into a flat version and any of the colours in our colour catalogue can be used.
Collection FRAMES

In our new collection FRAMES we offer you a sophisticated and subtle rug with endless colour combination possibilities. The rug is woven in one piece, using our herringbone, columns, round diamond twill or rosepath pattern for the center part and with a frame in folded singleweave. Choose the pattern and colour of the main part and add the frame in either a similar or contrasting colour depending on your interior. The design may be ordered in any of our colours and in sizes up to six meters wide. Here are some of the beautiful combinations we have composed to set your creativity free.
