Kristiina Lassus

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. The yarn is manually carded, spun and dyed, thus giving the rugs subtle variations in color and texture. Kristiina Lassus rugs are made in 80/100 knots quality and in low pile. They are available in various standard sizes and can also be made to measure. The GoodWeave certi­ficate guarantees that no child labor has been used.
