Tuulikki Peltonen is a textile and surface designer who is specialized in woven textiles and surface pattern collections. She has graduated as a Master of Arts from the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture with the Fashion, Clothing and Textile Design major. Her way of designing is characterized by craft skills and a strong interest in experimenting with different materials, textures, and color combinations. In the textile products designed by Tuulikki, one can find carefully considered, simplified textural rhythms, but also playful and colorful styles. Product quality and sustainability are important to her.
In cooperation with VM Carpet, Tuulikki has used her weaving and material knowledge and designed rug models for the home, of which the latest is the Pajukko paper yarn rug. She describes the design work of Pajukko like this:
“I weave small samples when designing rugs, and so also with the Pajukko rug. One theme I wanted to express through weaving, was Nordic beautiful everyday life. The domestic willow dye combined with brown undyed paper yarn and the effortlessly elegant weave bring calm Scandinavian aesthetic to the home.”
