“The town of Kinna is situated within easy access of water in a region lacking in fertile land,” explains Eva Boding, CEO of Kasthall. “As the area wasn’t good enough for agriculture, it naturally became a textile district. Yarn was dyed in the river and Kinna became a major producer of clothes and curtains.” Kasthall was founded in 1889, when electricity was first introduced, by entrepreneur and designer Ludvig Andersson. The factory was the first of its kind in the country, and it has been nothing but a rug factory from day one and up until today. Word spread quickly aboutthe high-quality, beautiful rugs and the factory started working with prominent designers including Ingrid Dessau, Viola Gråsten and Astrid Sampe.
