- About -
There is an essence of romance at the core of Chhatwal & Jonsson. Firmly rooted in two cultures, Sweden and India, the brand has a unique approach to creating an expression inspired by living between the two cultures.
It initially began as a humble idea to combine Scandinavian eye for design with Indian handicraft and has blossomed into a recognized label with a presence in stores in 25 countries.
A Swedish brand created by Stig Jonsson and Geetali Chhatwal Jonsson aiming to grow step by step in true entrepreneurial fashion, always using their own map instead of travelling a path directed by others. These elements come together beautifully to evoke the vibrant textiles of Chhatwal & Jonsson.

RugsIn the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh rugs have been woven since the 17th century. Our dhurries are handwoven on traditional looms and skillful weavers give life to a variety of our designs. These dhurry rugs are known for their durability and beauty. We use high quality wool from New Zealand in all our dhurries.
Hand printed linen cushion coversThe linen cushion covers are made of a special 2 ply linen woven specially for us in a small cottage industry in the Indian region of Bihar. The hand printing of the fabric is done in our factory outside Delhi and silk screens are used for printing.
The linen fabric is laid out on a 20 meter long wooden table and two master printers on each side of the table skillfully move the screen along the fabric as they print. The printed linen fabric is then dried under the warm Indian sun, almost no water is used in this traditional printing method.
Velvet cushion coversIntricate and skillful details made by hand are a signature of our velvet cushion covers. Ranging from the dori technique to applique and embroidery these cushion covers blend in beautifully with the linen range. The hand work is done in our factory outside of Delhi with a group of skillfull tailors who have an eye for detail.
