Oyyo

Oyyo is a studio based in Sweden founded by creative duo Lina Zedig and Marcus Åhrén, who marry Swedish design sensibilities with their nomadic moods and travelling adventures. the studio releases one to two new products per year to work up a core collection of textiles, pieces of furniture and accessories. their first collection is Oyyo No.1, a series of six original dhurries handwoven by a community of craftspeople near India’s Blue City, Jodhpur.

Uniquely made from 100% organic cotton and vivid vegetable dyes derived from local plants, our dhurries are conceived as timeless self-investment pieces providing comfort of the best possible quality out there. The dhurries are woven with techniques dating back centuries, devoid of machines, but with a contemporary design and colour pallet. Their carefully selected colours and exquisite patterns become a statement of Oyyo’s natural optimism and core values: We claim a re-engagement with the natural world and express our confidence in the productive wonders made possible thanks to cultural diversity.
