Tencel Carpets Is the New Stylish Addition to the ASPLUND Collection
Swedish furniture company ASPLUND launches a collection of super dreamy Tencel carpets that are hand woven, knotted and tufted by skilled craftsmen. In store now!
ASPLUND is an interior concept—true to the scaled-back Scandinavian aesthetics—built around a furniture and carpet collection, a kitchen collection, a contract department, an interior studio and store (online and physical). They have previously been working with New Zealand wool as a primary material for their carpets, but are now introducing new styles made from a cellulose based Tencel fiber extracted from botanical raw materials—like eucalyptus. Except for being completely natural and biodegradable, Tencel also has a smaller environmental impact compared to for exempel cotton, with a 10-20 times lower water consumption (read more about it here). With this (very stylish) addition to the carpet collection, ASPLUND wants to contribute to a more sustainable environment while offering high-quality carpets that will last for generations.
The new additions to the collection includes the hand knotted Fringe & Edge carpets by ASPLUND Studio, and a hand tufted Wedge carpet by Marie-Louise Hellgren, inspired by wooden waste material. Shop the collection here!
