If your room is crying out for a little pattern, then look no further than the Ida wool cushion from Røros Tweed.
Ida comprises eight harmonious shades of red and green, resulting in a cushion that has a beautiful autumnal feel.
Made from 100% Norwegian lambswool, the supersoft Ida design draws inspiration from patchwork and tapestries. Initially, design duo Anderssen and Voll made a full-scale model of the design from coloured paper, and the traces of the hand through small imperfections and irregularities were preserved and brought into the woven fabric.
Pop the Ida cushion on a chair or sofa and sit back and relax.
Selected wool from Norwegian sheep, combined with collaboration with leading Scandinavian designers and textile artists, has made Røros Tweed one of the most reputable producers of 100% Norwegian-made brands.
Røros, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was once a mining town 600 meters above sea level. The valuable copper discovery brought wealth to some but left many in poverty. When Peder Hiort, the mine's director, passed away in 1789, he left his fortune to a foundation supporting textile education and providing raw materials to the poor. This legacy laid the foundation for Røros Tweed, a tradition of handcraft and textile production. In 1940, Røros Tweed became a sales outlet for exquisite handmade textiles.
