IT ALL BEGAN WITH FRIENDSHIP AND VISIONS
Linum was founded 50 years ago when an unexpected friendship blossomed between Swedish design and Indian craftsmanship.
During his travels in India in 1966 Linum’s founder met two ambitious brothers, and this began what would become a life-long friendship and business partnership. They had shared visions and values concerning tradition, quality, and durability, and wished to create long lasting products in harmony with both nature and humans. The brothers had started a family business, and with Linum’s assistance they purchased 10 looms and began producing timeless Swedish design. Today, the hand-weaving factory contains 80 looms and still inhabits its pride in craftsmanship and family traditions.
Linum makes use of the best materials and craftsmanship in order to ensure the highest possible quality and durability. We prefer a few timeless classics of the highest quality to numerous mass-produced products that only last a short time. This is how Linum defines durability and style.
LINUM’S PHILOSOPHY IS TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF SUSTAINABLE AND DURABLE PRODUCTION
Inspired by the Swedish nature, with its gentle, pleasing colours and stylish shapes, we create tactile textures that only become more beautiful over time. Long lasting classics in the modern home, brimming with style, simplicity, and quality in all its details.
Linum’s close connection to nature and belief in long lasting quality also affects our use of resources – both natural and human. Ever since those first weavings in 1966, we have been on the forefront of what sustainable production means, with high standards for the working environment and a minimal impact on the environment. With the brothers in India (whose work still makes up 70% of Linum’s production) we ensure that all our productions are ISO 1400-1 certified; we exclusively use Eco-Tex approved colouring within a closed water system, and 94 % of the water is reused during the colouring process, the rest evaporates. Our production utilizes no chemicals that could be a harmful to your health, and our textiles are both anti-static and allergy friendly.
Common to all Linum’s products is the modern usage of timeless Swedish design, excellent craftsmanship and high quality. Sophisticated classics that only become increasingly beautiful – created to last from one generation to the next. Not just because of their style, but also their quality.
No matter the product, Linum always provides sophisticated Swedish design and craftsmanship of the highest quality. Inspired by nature, Linum delivers timeless classics and modern design to ensure stylish and beautiful homes – today, and in the future.
