KVAM is a play with geometry, guided by the possibilities and limitations of the jacquard weave. The motif clearly relates to the horizontal and vertical directions of the fabric, while the diagonal lines create rhythm and dynamism. The pattern gives associations to both Norwegian and Japanese motifs.
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.
