Cappelen Dimyr is an artistic collective based in Copenhagen, which was founded in 2018 by four creatives – two sisters plus one sister’s husband and a friend -- with the goal of making quiet yet sophisticated, richly textured handmade rugs inspired by the rustic southeast coast of Sweden. The collective produces striking made-to-order rugs rendered in natural fibers in earthy, neutral tones. Designed in Scandinavia, each rug is handmade in India in collaboration with local artisans applying their knowledge and craftsmanship. Its workshops are authorized by Good Weave Certification and the certification of Care & Fair. Soft and plush, the rugs speak with the calm elegance of refined Scandinavian design.

This design is a hand-knotted pile in natural wool with a soft irregular pattern. The rug is in 100% natural, unbleached New Zealand wool in a mix of light and dark stone grey. A long fringe elevates the edge and adds a textured detail.
Any variation in color or detailing is a result of the handcrafted nature of this item and makes each piece unique. Please note this is a partly long pile and shaggy rug which usually has the tendency to shed more than low pile rugs. Make sure to vacuum often to reduce this.
Care Instructions: After unwrapping the rug, vacuum it thoroughly to remove excess wool. All long pile rugs shed initially and it is recommended to vacuum the rug daily at first. Remove stains by using only warm water and a tiny bit of soap. For liquid, gently dab with a microfiber cloth. For more thorough cleaning, dry cleaning is recommended.
