About Linum

Linum has designed, developed and produced high quality textiles for more than 40 years. The company was founded in 1966 by Sven Kempe after he travelled in India. During his time there, he nurtured the idea of helping people to develop through their own work. Today, the desire to support the development in southern India and to combine this with the best of Swedish design is the foundation for our company culture and philosophy.
