Discover the Beauty of Ethical Living Inside and Out – I have been observing the Weaver Green range for some time now. Not only do they produce a stunning range of homewares, ethical living is their principal value and I couldn’t wait to try one of their rugs for myself.
Their genuine commitment to sustainability is at the core of the business with their entire range of products made from recycled plastic bottles, which would otherwise go into landfill or litter the oceans. They are also committed to championing artisanal weaving methods, creating a range of products that have the feel of wool, yet are water- and mould-resistant and hardwearing enough to be used outside as well as in.
Having had a problem with moths for years and the knowledge that the product is moth-resistant added to my joy when laying my new rug on the lounge floor.
Their collection of soft-to-the-touch weather-proof rugs make robust floor coverings and can transform an indoor space as well outdoors into an extension of your home. Their beautifully woven designs upgrade a plain patio or drab decking into a warm and welcoming area.
Incredibly soft to the touch, all their rugs are hand-loomed from their amazing, recycled yarn. They use non-toxic dyes, and their colours are UV stable, giving them extra protection against the sun’s rays.
Yet perhaps best of all, each rug is made from up to 5,400 recycled plastic bottles. Besides making them good for the planet, this also makes this truly unique selection of floor coverings UV stable, mould and water resistant as well as quick drying. And if they do get a little grubby, a quick spin in the washing machine and they’re good as new!
They have an awesome collection of colourful rugs and unique designs all skilfully hand-loomed by craftspeople in India using kilim weaves made entirely from recycled plastic (PET) yarn. To help secure a future for this beautiful dying craft, Weaver Green uses 25 looms to make these traditional hand-woven kilim designs. It celebrates artisan skills, supports hand-weavers, and protects traditional techniques. While its innovative yarn technology increases practicality and tells a real sustainability story.
These brilliant statement rugs work well in high-traffic areas, including kitchens, hallways, and patios, they are stain-, mould- and water-resistant and if they do get a little grubby, they are fully machine washable.
As well as gracing floors and patios, these rugs can be used as wall hangings and work just as well in traditional settings as they do in modern interiors to improve room acoustics.
All of Weaver Green’s rugs are child- and pet-friendly. Their cosy underfoot feel is as soft as wool, claw-resistant and uninteresting to moths and mites, which is great news for allergy sufferers.
I have the Nomad Taurus Rug which features their toughest weave for extra durability and wear. It is a wonderful statement piece, featuring beautiful colours and a traditional Kilim design. Each Nomad Atlas Rug is made from up to 5400 recycled plastic bottles.
To complement the look, Weaver Green has a wide-ranging collection of cushions, throws, footstools and floor cushions too.
