Klässbols place on earth is Klässbol, Värmland, Sweden. Here, the third and fourth generation of the Johansson family manage the business and traditions inherited from their grandfather and great grandfather Hjalmar, who sat weaving all night long. Klässbols unstinting faith in linen as a natural material has provided them with a living and a purpose in life. They have received prestigious commissions from the Swedish Court and embassies, bringing Klässbols international fame. With a strong sense of tradition and faith in linen as a natural material, they work together to carry Klässbols, the family business, into the future.
"With a strong sense of tradition and faith in linen as a natural material, we work together to carry Klässbols, our family business, into the future - a satisfying endeavour that we are delighted to share with you." - Andreas Johansson, CEO.
Klässbols Linen Factory produce products of high quality and modern design. Together with well known designers they create 100% pure linen-products with modern patterns. Despite this, they are linked more to handicraft and crafts than modern design. Our mission was to take them from a feeling of home made handicrafts by creating a packaging concept to radiate a stronger feeling of modern design and premium products.
