Anki is based on a close relationships between our customers and our production. Everything we have made for the past 40 years have been made by hand in our own factory in the North of Savolax where we still produce everything today.
Our designers and customers have carefully selected Anki colours over the past 40 years by our family and customers. Once Peggy took over the company she spent five years developing our unique colouring station. Her mission was to give our customers the best possible quality and satisfaction. Today we can produce practically any color desired in our own colouring station where each colour is individually made for each customer. At the moment we have a standard selection of over 250 colours that change constantly depending on our customers desires.
Our high quality cotton is carefully selected from the best cotton producers around the world. We select cotton that has been flawed for clothing, but can still be used for making our handmade rugs. This concept reuses cotton that otherwise would be wasted. Every sheet of cotton is individually ripped by hand depending on the customer’s choice of pattern. The width of the strips vary from one centimeters to eight centimeters depending on the choise of pattern. This strengthens the concept that every step of production is 100 % handmade.
Linen warp is a key raw material in every Anki rug. Historically Nordic rugs have been woven with carefully chosen, strong linen warp. Since we believe in tradition and our heritage, we still today use the same organic materials that have been used for hundreds of years.
Different edging give different characters to the rug. We have a wide selection on edges that the customer can choose from. They vary from modern to classical alternatives.
Our patterns have been designed by our artisans and customers over the past 40 years. Some of them have become Classics and remained in our collections. Today we have 25 standard patterns to choose from. This does not mean that our rugs have stagnated, we still develop and produce unique and new patterns each year. They are usually designed by interior designers who want something differnt and unique. In other words the customer can become the designer and create something unique just as wanted.
