Perfect for garden entertaining!
Margo Selby Studio is proud to release our new indoor/outdoor kelim rugs – equally perfect for conventional interior use OR patios, decks and conservatories – anywhere that you would like to add warmth, comfort and style – it is now possible to have Margo Selby design in your garden!
These vegan rugs combine innovative sustainable tech with traditional artisan skills – they are hand-woven on looms, using hand-dyed recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate (rPET) yarn – made from plastic water bottles. Like an update of traditional rag-rugs and quilts, they thriftily seek to repurpose existing material – a green ethos both homely and global in vision, close to the hearts of makers like us, and something we very-much have in common with the community-weavers in India we work with on production.
The two patterns – bright and bold ROSARIO and subtly toned ANTEDIOS – are both quintessential Margo Selby, and each rug is finished with our signature-striped edge. They are effective as a lone design statement, or styled with our cushions, throws and upholstery – or towels (rPET yarn is ideal for bathrooms). The geometric pattern progressions and syncopated rhythms of the designs are expertly realised by the skilled hands of the weavers – each individual rug is a unique handmade creation.
rPET yarn is incredibly soft and warm underfoot, very like wool – it doesn’t appear ‘plasticy’ – and it is extremely hard-wearing, easily cleaned and stain resistant – suitable for high-traffic areas of your home (for example hallways, kitchens and play-rooms) – we love rPET yarn as a green solution, but we also love it as a sumptuous textile. An outdoor rug opens up a whole new world of possibilities for garden-living and summer evenings.
Engaging and supporting traditional community weaving industries in economically developing countries is a core-value of our design and production practice.
