Rugs that find their place in the world

Over the years since 1973 in our factory we have only made rugs that can find their place in the world. And that’s the way rugs have always been made, for a certain place.
 
Humanity. Behind every company there are people. And that is absolutely the case when it comes to VM-Carpet. People are fantastic creatures, capable of achieving amazing things. Our rugs are made by people for people. Diversity is an asset. It’s alright to make a mistake – we learn from them.
 
Inventiveness. We encourage everyone in our company to think how things could be done in a better way. A fantastic and fully workable idea can come from a customer as well as from a member of our team. We in VM-Carpet firmly believe that everything can be worked out and there is a solution to every challenge.
 
Genuineness. Our factory is in a fantastic location. We appreciate and are very proud of our roots. We do not want to pretend to know it all or be something we are not. We are honest, straightforward, and eager to learn. When we experience or see wrongdoing, we intervene and act.
 
Joy of life. Our products are made to last. Rugs provide joy whether you make or use them.
 
Faith in the future. We want to develop and grow, and conquer new corners of the world. We believe it’s our mindset and attitude that matter. Tomorrow is another fantastic opportunity for us to seize.

Greetings from the Fantastic Rug Factory!

In 1973 the Viita-aho Rug Factory was founded in Lappajarvi, Finland by Arto and Aila Viita-aho. And we are still here in Lappajarvi, carrying on the work of our parents as a family company. Here at the factory we believe that each and every single rug makes the world a slightly better place to live in. Our high quality is made up of techniques, professional skills and the basic values of life.

We already have a versatile collection of rugs, but you’re welcome to enquire about different shapes and sizes. Most of our rugs feature a non-slip backing to add safety and comfort.We pay a great deal of attention to every rug we make and choose the materials very carefully. And surely it goes without saying that every single rug is thoroughly finished and inspected before it leaves the factory.

Aava to “Top 12”

Every year in Habitare fair the interior journalists choose twelve interesting novelty products to ”Top 12”. This year this distinction was presented to the Aava collection. ”The arguments of jury were ”Functional, well designed and fresh collection which honors the traditions and professional skill of the manufacturing companies, still operating in the present time.
 
Saara Renvall and Elina Helenius have designed (extra)ordinary articlesf or the AAVA product family. The collection arose from collaboration and contains new, interesting textile products and new twists on the classic products of the manufacturing companies. The collection consists of high-quality, beautiful and functional products which last long and hold up to wear.

The two designers have added a touch of design and international spirit to the Ostrobothnian attitude of making things happen. The launch of the AAVA Collection is a tribute to the core characteristics of the materials, natural colours, and above all, the continuation and preservation of Finnish manufacturing. 

New carpet collection from Ristomatti Ratia

Ristomatti Ratia is certainly one of the leading and most efficient designers in Finland. Interiors are often the starting point for product design. Indeed, Ratia considers interior design to be his own area. The products reflect the Ratia Lifestyle, which is characterised by good design, an air of freshness and casual elegance.
 
Cooperation between Ristomatti Ratia and VM-Carpet started one year ago and as a result we have now a wonderful carpet collection which includes three paper yarn carpets called Basso, Ruska and Tyyni and one wool-paper yarn carpet called Rytmi. With his rug collection Ristomatti Ratia has set out to achieve clarity, nature and simplicity. Rather than dominating space, the rug should support the interior and bring ambience and order to it. Ratia thinks that the durable paper yarn carpet belongs to the present time. Paper yarn carpets bring harmonic and peaceful atmosphere to the room. Actually Ristomatti Ratia considers paper yarn carpets being very “cool”. In both Basso, Ruska and Rytmi carpets there can be seen the stripe pattern that is typical for Ratia.
