DisappointedKathryn H.Very disappointed with this purchase. Screws holding the bottom corner brackets strip easily. The free-floating bottom comes out if held from the bottom, and the top does not fit and pops up on one corner. I was expecting better quality for the price.1

Invite nature into your home

When we developed TOLKNING, we worked with experienced artisans. The result is a decorative and multi-functional series of natural fiber products that carry warmth, a unique expression, and lots of character.

Simi Gauba and Kristin Pfannenschmidt are two of our product developers who are based in Vietnam and work a lot with natural fibers. “When we created TOLKNING, we got help from skilled artisans who know the strengths and weaknesses of the material,” says Simi. “Without them, we wouldn’t be able to offer these products to our customers.”

Form and function hand in hand

When each natural fiber is treated right, it can be transformed into almost anything. “We can create products that are as beautiful as they are functional. It’s impossible to manufacture two that look exactly the same, since every natural fiber shifts in color and texture. On the other hand, customers get something unique with lots of character,” says Kristin.

Cooperation between man and nature

Simi says that working with natural fibers can be challenging, but that is also a part of the charm. “The TOLKNING series reflects a heritage that is worth preserving – man and nature together and skills passed on from generation to generation. I think that’s one of the reasons why these kinds of products are so loved. They have a soul and warmth that many people like – perfect if you want to add genuine materials and natural beauty to your home.”


What is rattan?

Rattan is a strong yet lightweight and flexible material made from the rattan plant’s stem. It can be used both whole and split into thinner materials that are braided into things like furniture and baskets. Rattan belongs to the palm family and climbs along trees, though no trees are required to be felled when the rattan cane is harvested. Since it is a natural material and the products are often handmade by skilled craftspeople, each object gets a completely unique look.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

“My idea with the TOLKNING series was to create sustainable products made from natural fibers that could be used in different ways and in several places throughout the home. I started with my Scandinavian heritage and, in combination with the knowhow and professional skills of craftspeople, the unique products took shape – made by people and for people. I hope they will be useful, bring you joy and make you feel proud about making a conscious choice.”
