With over 35 billion plastic bottles finding their way into our seas each year and over 90% of all marine birds having plastic deposits in their stomachs, Weaver Green felt it was important to look at creative and useful ways of turning recycled plastic bottles into beautiful additions for our homes and everyday lives.
Their range of environmentally-friendly, recycled rugs look and feel just like wool, but contain up to 3000 salvaged plastic bottles each. All of the products are made in exactly the same way meaning everything we sell has helped prevent hundreds of single use plastic bottles from ending up in the ground or floating in the ocean.
Weaver Green care about people as well; that's why they only use weaving houses committed to employing skilled adults, who are paid fairly and enjoy comfortable and fair working conditions.
All of our rugs have the same soft feel of wool or Jute but, thanks to being made from recycled plastic, everything we sell is machine washable, moth proof, easy to clean, mould resistant, UV stable and hard wearing.
- Machine washable
- Perfect for those with dust mite allergies or asthma
- Environmentally friendly
- UV stable and suitable for indoor and outdoor use
- Stain resistant (red wine just washes out)
- Very hard wearing
- Immune to textile moth attack
- Great for pet owners
All of the above makes the rugs absolutely perfect for use in kitchens, under dining tables, in bathrooms and hallways, as well as outside on garden terraces and in summer houses. You can even take our products to the beach or on a camping trip!
PERFECT FOR MESSY HOMES
Keeping mucky children, cats and dogs away from nice things is an impossible task, it’s just the way they are designed. The good news is the washable rugs are immune to muddy paw prints, crayons and even red wine.
All the rugs are machine washable if it will fit inside your washing machine, and can be washed at 30 degrees (don't tumble dry). Our large rugs wash just as easily, but you’ll need the help of a commercial laundrette.
For the best pet-friendly rugs and high traffic options, try our tightly woven and hard wearing Juno and Kasbah ranges which standup to claws, heels and football boots much better than the soft open weaves of our Diamond and Herringbone rugs.
DUST MITE AND MOTH RESISTANT
The downside of real wool products is that moths love them. Moth larvae will happily munch their way through the woolen fibres in rugs and blankets, ruining your lovely home as they go.
Fortunately, whilst all the rugs have the feel and appearance of real wool, they provide no kind of sustenance to moth larvae or any other critters, making them the perfect moth resistant solution.
Oh, and dust mites? They hate the rugs as well, which is great news for allergy sufferers and pet owners.
