Kasthall’s LOOP technique creates distinct shadows by experimenting with different heights of boucle in their rugs.

Design brand Kasthall has been in the rug and textile flooring business since the19 th century. Each year, unique carpets and floorings are developed out of its factory in Kinna, Western Sweden. Despite the age-old tradition involved in their craft, the company has been constantly innovating and evolving their products with a future-forward approach.

Their 2017 collection premieres the hand-tufted Field and Madison rugs, tw rugs that features the LOOP technique that has been in the works for years. Experimentation has been done to create new patterns by applying different heights of boucle. Through the raising of surface, light shadows are formed, enhancing the three-dimension look and feel. On the Field rug, patterns resemble shadows on wooden floors that fall through a venetian blind. The medium-sized rug carries wide stripes while the small version includes slimmer stripes, creating distinct shadows compared to its wider counterpart. To add, the five colours available in Paris Blue, Almond, Porcelain Pink, Blond and Rouge are all head turners.

The Madison rug might seem familiar to most as the inspiration for the Madison originates from blueprints off a city network. Its grid like patterns are not rigid but soft to the eyes and are matched with the comforting colour schemes of Bone, Midnight, Olive Twist, Sage and Paper, inspired by the urban environment and concrete pavements. By letting material and yarn run the show with their innovative direction and topical designs, Kasthall have reinvented the tradition of spinning yarn.
