It all began 15 years ago
"I can still recall the feeling I had when I first found a stock of plastic ribbons from the 60’s at a small weavery here in Dalarna. I had just begun weaving my linen rugs and was looking for my own form of expression, one that combined high-quality craftsmanship with modern design and functionality. Suddenly, with those ribbons, a whole new world opened up to me!
Along with the craftmen of the weavery, I began experimenting with the ribbons, developing new colours, techniques, patterns – elevating the classic plastic rug of Sweden to a whole new level. Twice as thick and with bold-coloured patterns, the Pappelina rug began to take the world by storm. And that’s how we are where we are today. Pappelina is growing, yet at our core remains small-scale local Dalarna craftsmanship. It is only our market that has grown to be global."
- Lina Rickardsson, Founder and Designer
Crafted with love and pride in Sweden
To us, even the smallest detail is important – from the choice of material and pattern, to the weaving and the finish. And everything we do, we do by hand. Each Pappelina rug represents a piece of Swedish craftsmanship, from start to finish, brought to life through a close interplay between design and weave. But we’re not just about colourful perfectionism, we want to bring to your day a burst of high-quality joy! We like what we do, what we make – our hope is that you do too.
P.S. We use nothing but Swedish manufactured, environmentally certified plastic that meets the requirements set by REACH™.
