Knut draws inspiration from the basic structure and creation process of weaving, where the threads form a crossed pattern. The design is a tight grid where verticals meet horizontal lines and the junctions form a new color in an overlapping effect. When one spreads the blanket around oneself, the same lines can be read as waves.
With origins dating back to the 18th century, Røros Tweed makes fantastic quality woolen blankets in the factory located 600 meters above sea level. The large factory started up in 1952 and before that many of the products were made at home by the residents of Røros. Since then, Røros Tweed has experimented with Norwegian wool and developed textile products of high quality and good design. They have collaborated with several Norwegian designers to create a modern design that continues to be inspired by Røro's aesthetic and cultural heritage.
