The Pappelina production

All Pappelina rugs are made at our local weaving mill in the small village of Lek­sand, Sweden. To the sound of wooden shuttles rushing back and forth – a well-coordinated interplay between loom, warp and weft – the patterns and design is cre­ated. Each rug we make represents a pie­ce of Swedish craftsmanship and thanks to great composition, high quality materi­als and devoted craftsmen and -women, we bring you the durable, contemporary and colorful design that is Pappelina.

A Pappelina rug is truly a piece of artistry. At a first glance, a plastic rug does not seem to be too advanced, but the fact is that plastic is one of the most complicated material to weave with in the tra­ditional shuttle looms we use. Unlike other customary materials used for wo­ven rugs, whose traits are stiff, plastic is unpredictable and elastic. This makes the weaving procedure complicated. Technology and materials are constantly being challenged by our weaving masters to achieve new results. This is the reason why a Pappelina rug is exceptional and world-leading in its standard and quality.

We are proud to be picky about our material! We only use the highest quality plastic material. A rug from Pappelina is exclusively woven from the purest plastic ribbons made in Sweden. By purchasing Swedish-made raw material we can meet our high-quality standards and en­sure that our rugs do not contain any harmful substances whatsoever. The plastic we use is approved for use in the food industry and to produce toys in both the EU and the US.

All* Pappelina rugs are made of 92% Swedish phthalate free, non-toxic PVC and 8% polyes­ter warp.

*BIO EDITION made of 92% phthalate free, non-toxic car­bon neutral PVC .
