Ilse Crawford + Kasthall: the Evolution of Grönska Collection
10/12/2019 - Kasthall’s Grönska collection, created in a design collaboration with British designer Ilse Crawford,has been updated this autumn with four new colors. Inspired by the Swedish landscape around the Kasthall factory in Kinna, Västergötland, Sweden, Grönska pays homage to the magnificent colors of nature and Kasthall’s craftsmanship.
 
The design collaboration, which began in spring 2017, consists of three woven rugs, Fåra, Glänta and Ängsmark, as well as the tufted mats Täppa and Åker. Ilse Crawford, in collaboration with the Kasthall Design Studio, explored different weaving and tufting techniques in order to reflect the irregularity, softness and tactility of nature. These qualities are infused into the rugs – and in turn to the homes or public spaces where we spend time.

Now the Grönska collection is being expanded, presenting Fåra and Ängsmark in four new colors. In the new color updates, additional months have been added: August, October and February, with August representing two of the four new colors. The color updates consist of a wide span of neutral colors in direct response to market demand. The inspiration for the new color updates was drawn from the light, fresh green tones of nature, the barren winter landscape and fields ready for harvest.
 
The Grönska collection was an interpretation of the verdant green landscape we saw when we first visited Kasthall. Seeing the changing seasons through a green filter we have realized just how many nuances there are with almost daily shifts in tone. So, we have introduced some more subtle distinctions. A trace of yellow here, a greenish grey there, exploring the in between shades of green and to integrate with different living spaces, says Ilse Crawford, Studio Ilse.

Ilse shares the same values of sustainable, durable design as Kasthall and she understands our Scandinavian design and cultural heritage. We are also proud that the Grönska collection pays tribute to the place where we have been located since 1889. Expanding this lovely collection with more colors is a fun and important move. Ängsmark and Fåra are key trendsetters right now, says Lena Jiseborn, Head of Design at Kasthall.
 
From Kinna’s forests to the floors of the world
Since Kasthall was founded in 1889, the company and factory have been located in the little town of Kinna. The ideas that led to the creation of Grönska were sparked when Ilse Crawford’s first visited the factory and saw the surrounding meadows and fields. The collection was developed as a tribute to the life, colors, patterns and textures of the Swedish landscape.

The factory feels very connected to the surrounding fields and farming land, so designing a collection of rugs that pay tribute to the Swedish nature around the factory was a natural step. Like Kasthall’s rugs, it is a landscape created by people and their machines, says Ilse Crawford.
