How the KUTO pouf was conceived

Posted on January 24, 2017

Inspired by traditional woven patterns, we reimagined a Finnish birch bark basket in our new range of poufs with the name KUTO, derived from the Finnish ‘kutoa’ – ‘to weave’.

Nordic colours

Posted on December 6, 2016

Imagine a deep green pine forest. A cold, dark grey river runs through a misty landscape, slightly pink from the early morning sun as another cloudy grey winter’s day dawns. For our new 2017 collection we chose this beautiful wool upholstery fabric in 4 colours to evoke the beautiful imagery of the Nordic landscape.

Small tour through our Kumeko studio

Since moving from Prague to Berlin in 2012, the unique chaos and mismatched contrasts of the German capital have become an indispensable source of inspiration to us.

A sustainable alternative to traditional leather

Posted on April 19, 2015

Leather has retained much of its popularity throughout the decades, and not surprisingly so: it’s versatile as well as sturdy, and can add a luxurious touch to otherwise simple designs.
