When Swedish designer and Pappelina founder Lina Rickardsson began pursuing her passion for weaving, little did she know it would be the start of a booming textile business. After taking courses in Gothenburg, she started working in a small family-owned mill in Dalarna, where she discovered bright plastic ribbons once used to make rugs in the ‘70s. She gave the idea new life with a fresh tying technique, and—fast forward a few years—her plastic rugs are still made with pride in Sweden, and gracing floors the world over.
