An accomplished interior designer with a body of work that spans the globe from Europe to South-East Asia to Australia; Anna-Carin’s past and her childhood experiences have hewn a wonderful narrative for her first collection of rugs.
Traditionally, nomadic rug designs were often inspired by a myth or a poem and the rug would reinforce and illustrate the story. As a modern nomad each of Anna-Carin's designs tells a story from her childhood.
Each design in The Forsa Collection recounts a childhood recollection, each one abstracted and renewed. A Swedish sensibility reflected in these Nepalese hand knotted pieces in Tibetan wool and silk. The inspiration for the design of the rug, "My dad loves fishing. In the evenings after a long days on the farm, he would go to the “hulta” lake and come home with “Esox Lucius” (Northern Pike) – we would eat them with cream." - Anna-Carin
