Lina Rickardsson’s passion for weaving began with linen rugs and placemats. As her business grew, she discovered a small weaving mill in the heart of Sweden. While there, Lina noticed a wealth of plastic ribbons used to make rugs, and was inspired to create a “new” line of rugs.
Pappelina rugs are sold in Nordstrom, Pottery Barn, West Elm, and hundreds of boutique stores in the U.S. and worldwide.

An ode to founder Nilufer Bracco’s roots, niLuu’s meaningful designs toast to Turkey’s full bodied culture: rich color, texture, and narrative.

Patricia Marcia Lerman
Founder and Designer, Rian Tricot
Rian Tricot, the Brazilian brand, has mastered the nursery room décor. Their unique, and charming designs have decorated rooms all over the world. Knitting is their raison d’etre.
