DESIGNER: EMMA OLBERS SWEDEN
This carpet by Emma Olbersis for Asplund is designed for the public library in Stockholms newly renovated National Museum.
Biblioteket means library in Swedish. This is a hand-knotted rug with a design that represents a mixture of Emma’s first sketches of the Old Library.

It is made in a finely hand-knotted Tibetan knot with 50% wool and a 50% Tencel mix.
TENCEL® is a branded lyocell fibre of botanic origin, extracted from raw materials like eucalyptus. The TENCEL® fibre has many advantages in terms of sustainability Eco-friendly production, due to the closed-loop system. The raw material wood stems from fast-growing forest plantations without cultivating forestland suitable for agriculture. Also, water consumption is 10 – 20 times lower than with cotton.
