Graceful and discreet, yet rich in personality – these are the rugs of Kristiina Lassus. The symbols are drawn from the beauty of timeless nature coming from no particular place. Nepalese artisans fabricate the rugs by hand, following the traditional expertise brought to Nepal from Tibet. The special wool, which comes from plains at 3,000 meters above sea level in the Himalayan Mountains, is appreciated for its strength and softness, as well as its unique and easily recognizable appearance and texture.
Extensive elegance is the common factor for the diverse collection. The rug collection features a graceful and discreet design that is rich in personality.
The rug collection by Kristiina Lassus is inspired by travel, distant cultures, and a love for materials, colour, and nature. From a passion for ancient traditional handicraft with a modern insight, the rugs are designed to furnish contemporary spaces, whether modern or classic, in the city or the country, conceived for people who appreciate special quality and beauty, even under their feet.
