There’s just something about curated well-worn textures that make a space feel natural and lived-in, and this cotton rug is all about that. The block-print is deliberately weathered to create an antique effect that lends a rich, warm and rustic vibe. It's old meets new. It is enigmatically named after either an Australian tree and/or a German word meaning fellow citizen or neighbour, but one thing is for certain. The circular printed design in the gorgeous natural palette makes for a homely and mellow welcome for anyone into any room, regardless of origin.
Supplier Info: This large textile manufacturer employs four hundred men and women, of which over half are cottage workers. Employees receive insurance in order to get free medical treatment for all the family, provident funding for pensions and interest free loans. The company supports several charities including SOS Children Village India, Save the Children and Oxfam. Workers use traditional techniques to make their products that can include hand-weaving, hand-embroidery, cutwork, tie-dying and hand-block and screen printing. Materials vary, but things such as wool, jute, cotton, seagrass and recycled materials such as cotton, denim, saris and even sweet wrappers are used. Nothing is wasted. They have an excellent team of young people who are energetic and committed to the company and their forward-thinking vision.
