I just discovered Swedish design studio and company Oyyo and their beautiful Scandinavian textiles, and I’m in love. Founded in 2011 in Stockholm by Lina Zedig and Marcus Åhrén, Oyyo is more than just a textile design company. Its founders bring to it years of experience in multiple design disciplines, so we can expect more amazing designs from this team. In fact, it’s their goal to release limited edition collections each year.
But back to the rugs. Seriously—these are really great.
It’s a collection of six dhurries made from 100% cotton and dyed using local vegetable dyes. They are woven with techniques dating back centuries, before machines existed, but with a contemporary design and color palette. I don’t know which one I like best!
