Beauty is about making decisions.

The application area and purpose determines how textiles should be tailored to their surroundings and the existing architecture. Function and expression merge into one in Lomakka’s products. The rawness of wool is harmonised with materials such as concrete, glass, wood, stone and iron. Everything forms unique properties for acoustics absorbing products in public environments.

“I’m not inspired by nature. I am inspired of art and architecture. Living on Gotland is a bit like living in self-imposed exile. You are leaving Sweden, but not entirely.
Certain Lomakka products are brought to reality in a tiny weaving mill in Näs. This location is pretty in its own right – and also for what it makes.
“I am curious about Made By Gotland. It enables us to reach out in an entirely new way.”
