Celebrating Nature: It feels more right than ever to turn to nature for inspiration in our assortment of Klippan Blankets & Throws. Klippan blankets & throws use natural raw materials that have fantastic benefits not found in synthetic fibers, which is why they choose to offer only wool, cotton and linen in these goods. This makes it possible to ensure the high quality of the blankets and throws and at the same time be environmental friendly. This approach is not new to their Scandinavian textile mills, as many have been in the wool industry since the 1800's.
All of Klippan's blankets & throws are produced from start to finish in company owned mills with an eye towards ecological balance. The designers have created patterns that offer a straight and simple look with a modern touch or more traditional designs with connections to nature and Scandinavian wild life. Whether curling up in front of the television, reading a book or visiting on a porch or patio in the cool of the evening, Klippan blankets & throws will make it a cozy experience.
Lotta Glave is an illustrator and designer. She constantly develops her way of expressing herself and her starting point is humour and joy. Lotta's aim is to create designs, which are personal. Glave, who stems from Malmö believes a lot of her inspiration comes from her Austrian grandmother who worked as an illustrator and bookbinder. Their home was always filled with fun, homemade creations like fantastic doll’s houses made out of lacquered paper! I love stuff that is fun, different and makes you happy, says Lotta who got drawn into the family business when Bengt asked her to draw an angel. Like Bengt’s animals, Lotta’s angel has spread from candleholders and Christmas tree decorations to necklaces and fabrics. Nowadays, Lotta designs most of the patterns; designs that are appreciated all over the world, not least in Japan and the U.K.
More than 130 years ago, Jons Petter Magnusson bought the small wool spinning mill in Klippan. It was the start of a long journey which has lasted five generations.
With his background working as a spin master in Landskrona, Jons Petter saw an opportunity to build on his experience and start his own business. When he found the spinning mill in Klippan, he took the opportunity and bought it.
After a modest start, the company finally took-off and grew considerably for many years. In the 1980's, the business flourished and the factory became one of the largest and most modern spinning mills in Europe. When demand for wool yarn then decreased the idea to start producing blankets and throws was born. This turned out to be a very successful plan that lasts to this day.
