On the southern tip of Skåne, 59 raised boulders are arranged in a 67 metre-long outline with views over the region’s grassland, rolling fields, and the Baltic Sea. The Ale’s Stones, most likely erected in the 5th century towards the end of the Nordic Iron Age, and its surrounding landscape has inspired the collections Monolith and Fields.
Monolith 01 and 02 are drawn from the silhouettes of the 1400-year-old mystical monument. The rugs have a shaggy and textured wool weave. The colours are inspired by the charcoal stones, the surrounding dusty fields, and the teal blue-coloured ocean.
Fields aim to translate the mood and texture of the natural landscape surrounding the Monoliths. It has a soft shaggy wool weave and the colours symbolise the colours of the wheat fields as they mature during the course of summer. From a crisp dusty white when first rising from the soil to a sun-soaked sand colour at peak summer, to finally turning into an almost grey shade by the turn of the season.
