Material

This rug was created with long strips of pre-consumer hemp scraps from HEMPEA, scondhand macramé rope and an assortment of secondhand yarns.

Technique

The plaid rug was made on a simple, large scale frame loom. The warp of this rug is divided into seven sections of black and white yarn, which form a vertical stripe pattern in the final rug. The beige and white hemp strips were ironed, so that all edges are folded to the inside of each strip and therefore no fraying is visible. Bulky macramé rope, as well as orange, blue and pink accent yarns were combined with the hemp to create a subtly varied plaid rug. In the weaving process, a long tail of yarn or fabric was left at the start and end of each row, rather than turning the corner and continuing from row to row. These ends were later formed into tassles. For the macramé rope, this was done by untwisting the rope, for the hemp scraps, the weave was dissolved, so that only the loose threads remained.

Styling

This rug is a small size accent, perfect for your living room or bedroom. It can be layered with larger rugs in a more contemporary style or used on its own for example on the side of the bed. With its varied shades of white and beige and small color accents it fits with many styles of decor.

In collaboration with HEMPEA

HEMPEA is a finnish sustainable brand, creating eco-friendly home textiles from 100% hemp fabrics. This product is created with some of their pre-consumer scraps - cut-offs in the production process of their bedding and other products. Their high quality, ethically made hemp fabrics are too precious to waste, so we took all the small and odd shape pieces and created a small collection of unique Wasteless Wonders products with them.

Care instructions

All of our items are handmade from various materials and therefore sensitive to harsh washing and cleaning. Please wash all our products by hand in cold water with natural soap. Do not tumble dry or use bleach on any of them. If you feel the need to iron any of your items, use a low temperature and test carefully on one corner before going over the whole item.

Detailed care instructions will be included with your product. In general: Please treat (all) your belongings with as much love and care as they were treated with during their creation.

End-of-life returns

We will always accept your Wasteless Wonders products back at the end of their life, so that we can recycle them in-house and use the materials once more for new products. If items are in a bad condition, they can always become fluffy pillow stuffing as a last resort, so don't hesitate to send anything back. We are striving to operate as circular and as zero waste as possible, that's why we care what happens to our products across their whole life cycle, until the very end.

As a little thank you for your efforts, for every returned item, you'll receive a 10%-off cupon for your next order to make up for some of the shipping costs associated with your return.
