Linie Design is a Danish design company founded in 1980. As the largest developer and wholesaler of handmade rugs in Northern Europe, elegant colours and excellent materials are part of their everyday life.
Tradition is a keyword, both when it comes to Nordic design and unique craftsmanship.
All Linie Design rugs are designed by acknowledged Scandinavian designers and handmade by Indian master artisans, who have perfected their skills through generations. A modern, Nordic look is weaved into all their designs, though they constantly reshape, redefine, reinvent and recombine in the search of surprising expressions and surfaces.
The result is obvious: Linie rugs are bestsellers in more than 60 countries. Each rug is made carefully by hand from selected natural materials like wool, viscose and leather. Most rugs are handmade by skilful Indian weavers using traditional weaving techniques passed down from generation to generation. Linie develops a large variety of different styles, sizes and colours.
As well as style and design, Linie only develops and weaves rugs with usability in mind, many of their rugs have been used in both residential and commercial applications and have given many years of use. Linie only uses adult labour, they work closely with local organisations in India, regularly monitoring production.
As part of their operation in India they also proudly finance the running of a school with 350 students.
