Åsmund

The Åsmund blankets and pillows have clean geometric shapes which are softened by rich and sensous palettes. The series is inspired by textile art and woolen tapestries, interpreted in a contemporary manner.

The series consists of six pillows and six blankets. There are two blanket motives and two pillow motives, which comes in three color palettes – pink/green, yellow/purple and red/turquise. Both of the pillow designs have a different front and back. This means that the pillow can be turned around to display a different motif.

The products are made by the Norwegian manufacturer Røros Tweed. A carefully sorted blend of the finest Norwegian wool is carded, spun, twisted, dyed, woven and finished at their factories in Norway. The Åsmund series is Røros Tweed’s third collaboration with Kristine Five Melvær. The first two series – the Mikkel blankets and Naturpledd blankets – won Best Textiles in the 2015 ICFF Editors Awards.
