Kasthall’s Grönska collection, created in a design collaboration with British designer Ilse Crawford, is being updated this autumn with four new colors. Inspired by the Swedish landscape around the Kasthall factory in Kinna, Västergötland, Sweden, Grönska pays homage to the magnificent colors of nature and Kasthall’s craftsmanship.
Ängsmark is a thin, light hand-woven rug interspersed with lines of chenille. Kasthall and Studioilse use overdyed mélange yarns, specially developed for the Grönska collection, to bring subtle depth and variations in color like those found in the fields and meadows of Sweden. The mélange yarn is twisted with fine hair yarn in a contrasting color which appears randomly over the surface and adds to the effect. Ängsmark is available in four colorways reflecting the changing seasons.
Fåra is a handwoven rug that uses a newly developed bouclé yarn in pure wool with a beautiful irregular quality, woven in stripes to expose the wool base. This gives the appearance of earth and fields that have just been ploughed. The stripes are intensified by carefully considered contrasts of color. Fåra is available in four colors reflecting the changing seasons.
