Helene blanche about

The kindred path

"This rug collection is somehow an important ode to me as the conversation about designing rugs started 20 years ago with Hugo, my husband Jannik’s uncle, co-founder of Linie design. It resonated with me to hear about Hugo’s great devotion to craftsmanship. What attracts me is the elegance of flatweaves, the old technique and the traditional craftsmanship; I appreciate its beauty, its informal and authentic expression."

the kindred path collection

a familiy love affair

The collection is the result of a family love affair. With Linie Design co-founder Hugo Anthon being the uncle of Helene Blanche’s husband, she always knew that one day she would try her designer skills on a rug.

In 2022 the timing felt right for both parties, and with Linie Design’s weaving expertise based in the Northern part of India, combined with Blanche’s exquisite take on Danish design, the result is a contemporary take on the classic the hallway runner.

Combining a modern expression with a traditional craftsmanship finish, The Kindred Path collection is a strong and bohemian addition to Linie Design’s timeless portfolio of rugs.

the inspiration

"My wish and starting point for this collection, was to create hand-woven rugs based on classic craftsmanship and traditions, but with a new take. To design a series of abstract and organic patterns, to transfer them to the woven surface" - Helene Blanche
