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, "One year “Gudrun” visited us. She was a hurricane and she tore down almost all of our forest. Once collected, all the logs were stored in tall piles and watered continuously to stop the bugs from attacking the timber. You could go on a bus to view the piles, it became a tourist attraction." - Anna-Carin
