By Henzel

Henzel Sudio is a Swedish luxury rug manufacturer established in 1999. Henzel Studio’s ethos is based on the artistic practice of Calle Henzel, founder and creative director. Over the past fifteen years, he has translated his artistic practice as painter and collage artist into the medium at hand, positioning Henzel Studio as one of the most progressive luxury rug brands in the world.

While remaining at the forefront of design, Henzel Studio’s foundation and raison d’être lies in the artisanal production of local communities in Nepal that dates back thousands of years. Through a twelve-step handmade process, Henzel Studio’s rugs are unique works of art. Each piece is hand-knotted with 150 knots per square inch, and takes up to seven months to produce. The organic and artistic process of Calle Henzel has been the driving force in the development of Henzel Studio’s
designs. He has over the years in an uncompromised fashion challenged the traditional conventions of subject matter, shape, finishings and special treatments as a result of painstaking research that includes vintage treatments, intricate surface compositions and even natural erosion – methodologies that further blur the distinction between art and design.

Ethical and environmentally friendly production practices are fundamental to Henzel Studio’s quality standards and integral to the company’s future development. The Himalayan wool is one of the purest natural fibers in the world, and by nature a biodegradable resource. The material is exclusively dyed with ecological pigments from Switzerland. Henzel Studio is a proud member and supporter of Goodweave, an independent organization that certifies humanitarian standards of rug producers and provides educational outreach and resources.
