Dont miss the Tekla Roadshow, now visiting Teo Jakob in Zurich. We created the unique coat out of the tufted Kasthall Tekla rug by fashion designer Astrid Olsson at V Ave Shoe Repair. Tekla is one of our most well known tufted rugs. TEKLA ROADSHOW is on tour, next stop France&Germany
Years after its launch, our hand tufted rug Tekla is still taken the world by storm – it is one of Kasthall’s top selling products and has been awarded the Swedish Design Award (in competition with such diverse products as mobile phones and bicycles!). When Design S/Swedish Design Awards was distributed for the second time, nineteen products were nominated and ten awarded the grand prize “Design S”, amongst them Tekla. The jury statement said: Hand-tufted rug in a unique combination of variegated, felted wool yarn plus multi-coloured fine wool and flax yarn. The range of colours is inspired by confetti and parties, and can withstand most things. Durable quality combined with beautiful design.
The venerable design brand Kasthall was established in 1889 in Kinna, west of Sweden. Kasthall has become one of the leading rug and textile flooring companies in the world and are represented in 30 countries with showrooms in Stockholm, Milan and New York. Despite Kasthall’s global market presence, all production is carried out at the factory in Kinna where the Kasthall Design Studio also is located. That, together with design collaborations worldwide, gives us the opportunity to create unique rugs for the global interior world. Kasthall offers invaluable craftsmanship with focus on sustainability for both private and public spaces. Kasthall is a purveyor to the Royal Court of Sweden.
