About the pattern, from designer Åse Öjbro
"The Karg pattern came up a winter day on Rörö.
I was so taken by the harsh landscape and it reminded me of my grandparents Axel and Axi who lived a frugal and often tiring life.
With the Karg pattern, I want to capture the feeling of awe and gratitude that I and we all know about our families and ancestors who fought hard for their livelihood, not too long ago."
