ABOUT LINA RICKARDSSON
By mere accident it became plastic rugs.
After a couple of years abroad I returned to Sweden.
I ended up in a weaving loom, which led me on to art and to a weaving school in Gothenburg.
I started to interest me in rough material such as linen, sacking and paper, there of the name Pappelina.
The company Pappelina was founded in 1998 when I received my first volume order for linen rugs. I searched for a weavery and came across Dalaslöjden in Djurås, Dalarna, they produced rugs, but in plastic. Dalaslöjden had a stock of plastic cuts from the Sixties that inspired me enormously, and it was also the start of something new. I wanted to design my first plasticrug and over the years I have created a number of different rugs in various colours and patterns.
The rugs whet my appitate. They increased in popularity quickly and I dared to believe in myself and in my ideas. A couple of years later I also started to produce blankets and oilcloths.
When it comes to my design, I keep it simple, I start with what I like. I want it functional, exciting, beautiful and easy to care for.
My personal journey as a designer and company owner have been immense and joyful, with both ups and downs. The combination as a designer and employer is not always easy, that is why I am happy to delegate some of the business operation to my competent co-workers, that gives me time to focus on the designs. Currently I am moving on with new exciting products in the name of Pappelina,
