Tomi Leppänen is a Finnish designer behind Typewriter collection. A collection of rugs for both out- and indoor use. Mum's skilled artisans have made the textile by hand using. Material is recycled plastic bottles and details embroidered on surface by hand. Inspiration for Typewriter rug Collection comes from Tomi's obsession with typography. Freshly Nordic, joyful and minimalistic design is a study of the four most basic glyphs. Tomi is obsessed with he smiley symbol and emotions and those became the theme for the Typewriter collection.
This is not totally new area for Tomi, as he has learned about Anni Albers's use of this technique at the Bauhaus. Albers made some experiments for her textile patterns with using glyphs only.
Smiley as well other rugs of Typewriter collection are all handmade and ethically produced. This is an ecological rug, spreading joy in these times we live in now. We need more smiles. Let the smiles spread around your home and offices with Tomi's joyful, Nordic and minimalistic design.
Rug material is highest quality, very durable and suitable for outdoor and indoor use.
May be washed in water. Not too cold. If rug is outdoors please lift the rug every now and then from the floor as it needs to let dry every now and then.
