GABRIELLE – A DECLARATION OF LOVE TO CRAFTSMANSHIP
The soul and curiosity of craftsmanship has been given free rein in Gabrielle. Inspiration for the design was drawn from vintage textiles with carefully crafted details, embroidery in particular. Visible warp threads create irregular vertical stripes giving a sense of asymmetry. Gabrielle was also designed with accent colours that adorn the surface in the form of thin lines. The colours were selected to provide a contrast and strengthen the playfulness in the structure and crisscross pattern of the rug.
Gabrielle was designed by Maja Johansson Starander, designer at the Kasthall Design Studio. This woven bouclé rug is made of linen yarn with elements of wool yarn. The rug has novel proportions, presented as a squarer, slightly asymmetric rug in three unique patterns and colour schemes.

Kasthall has been designing and manufacturing unique woven and hand-tufted rugs since 1889. Our own factory is located since in Kinna, amid the traditional textile area in western Sweden, where the production still occurs. Over the years, Kasthall has become one of the world leaders in the design and manufacture of carpets, and is now represented in 30 countries with a showroom in Stockholm, Milan and New York. Part of the secret is that we own our own production and thus control the entire manufacturing process. Another is our consistent focus on design and development.
