‘The idea was to create a both honest and environmentally friendly – textile with a poetic feel by recycling leftover material from Kvadrat’s own production’, explains Margrethe Odgaard.
Reminiscent of colourful stitchings on a darker background, Re-wool features exceptional depth of colour, creating a dynamic play on the textile’s surface when applied to furniture.
The colours for the Re-wool palette are all picked from Margrethe Odgaard’s ‘Shades of the Nordic Spectrum’ collection of hand-painted samples.
Margrethe Odgaard: ‘In developing the palette, I have focused specifically on finding the right balance between warp and weft. I thought of shimmering pearls on a recycled woollen base. It was important to me, that the tones in the weft had a certain glow that could lift the colour from the dark base. It reminds me of early morning dew on blades of grass.’
Re-wool is suitable for private and public spaces alike.
