KASTHALL – WHEN SUSTAINABILITY MATTERS
In 1889, in the quaint Swedish hamlet of Kinna, passionate textile craftsmanship met nature-inspired design and gave rise to Kasthall. Today admired worldwide. Classy offices in Tokyo and boutique hotels in New York. Persian palaces and Royal Castles. Beautiful residences great and small. Exotic hideaways and luxury yachts.
Sustainability is, and always has been, an obvious and natural part of our identity and growth. Our environmental responsibility permeates the entire production chain. From raw material selection to production, transportation and waste. It comprises emissions to air, water as well as recycling. Our environmental policy sets a clear target to reduce combustible waste. The yarn we use is prepared, dyed and mounted on spools uniquely for each rug. Everything is made to order and manufactured according to every clients’ requests and needs. In a quality that lasts a lifetime. Thus, excess production is avoided. The superior quality makes it a nonrepetitive purchase, contributing to lower lifetime consumption of natures’ limited resources.
A well measured sustainability policy rests on long-term collaboration between manufacturer and suppliers. A small but good example are the leather tags attached to our rugs Harvest and Flourish, so called “circular leather tags”. It all started with a project termed “Developing future markets for climate and resource efficient products”, aimed at companies wishing to influence the future market for secondary textile. Kasthall is a driving force behind changing the way our industry works, incorporating the changes as a natural part of our production and our co-worker mindset.
