There is weaving and then there is this. The distinction is immediately obvious once you study the technical skill with which this hand-loomed rug is made. It is a candy-coloured rainbow within a fabulously uniform zigzag pattern and is wonderful for adding colour, warmth and character to a room. Each of these hand-loomed rugs is slightly different as the weave is made from recycled cotton rags. A rag rug never looked so good.
Supplier Info: The supplier of it employs over a hundred people, fifteen of whom work in the factory for inspection, finishing and packing as quality is of great importance to them. The rest are artisan weavers who weave the rugs in their own homes. The rugs are woven with cotton rags that are collected, washed and recycled from various sources. These ones are enhanced with naturally hand-dyed cotton warp. In addition to their statutory wage, workers receive a bonus and gifts at festival times. They work closely with the local community running a primary school providing free education for children. They pride themselves in the quality of their products, honesty in all things and fulfil the requirements of their customers to the best of their ability.

Flying carpets are fun in story books, but not at home so we recommend using an anti-slip underlay with this rug to keep it firmly on the ground.
