Swedish designer Lina Rickardsson started out weaving linen rugs in her own basement and founded Pappelina in 1998. When she found a stock of plastic ribbons from the 60’s at a small weavery, a whole new world opened up. Along with the craftmen of the weavery, Lina began experimenting with the ribbons developing new colours, techniques, patterns - elevating the classic plastic rug of Sweden to a whole new level. Pappelina is growing, yet at our core remains small-scale local craftsmanship. It is only our market that has grown to be global.
