Magic carpets for every room
Rugs are a great way to add a splash of colour to a room or update your decor without having to go to the expense of having to replace the carpet or flooring. They are also are a great way to define an area or protect the floor from furniture or heavy traffic. We have lots of lovely options for floor coverings depending on the shape, style, design and size you are looking for.
The circular rainbow coloured rug is made from multicoloured synthetic fabric woven into a jute pad making it hard wearing and the perfect rug for a kids bedroom or playroom. The high pile makes it super comfy for sitting on. Buy a single one to create a cosy reading corner in the living room or grab a few to use as floor seating, create your own runner to protect the carpet, or even take into the garden for magical games.
The hand-woven cotton rugs are modern rugs that feature contemporary diamond and chevron patterns with a contrasting coloured trim, yet they are made using traditional weaving techniques. The rectangular shape makes them perfect to use as alternative bath mats, and the fact that they are made out of cotton means you can put them in the washing machine making them suitable for outdoor use to fill your tent with beautiful rugs while camping.
The rag rugs are equally great for using while camping and the variety of sizes make them really versatile. Woven from waste material left over from the garment making industry no two rugs are the same. Again they are easy to vacuum or machine wash, meaning they are handy to put under the dining room table when little ones are learning to eat or use as bath rugs. And the multicoloured aspect means they work well with any colour scheme.
Every house needs a doormat to wipe your feed on as you come in. They are an inexpensive way to protect your carpet or flooring from muck and rain and are designed to be hard wearing and last a long time if well looked after. These fair trade rainbow doormats will not only protect your floor but make your home inviting and welcoming to guests.
The coconut coir doormats are colourful, fun and hard wearing as well as being fair trade and made from waste material. The coconut husk or coir is often a waste product after the coconut has been used to drink or provide food and oil. This project takes the waste fibre and turns it into doormats providing much-needed income and employment. We love the bright colours and rainbow designs. A perfect way to create a welcoming entrance to your home.
Coconut matting makes a really durable floor mat as its great at getting dirt and moisture off grubby boots and rubber soles but also can be easily cleaned with a good beat outside, some water and a stiff broom.
