Description

Introducing the Weaver Green Medina Tangier Rug. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor use and inspired by traditional Moroccan rug design, our Medina Tangier rugs have the look and feel of real wool but are actually made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. Made from our toughest weave, they're perfect for high traffic areas.

Hard-wearing, easy to clean and machine washable these gorgeous monochrome rugs are perfect for protecting carpets and floors from pets, mucky children and the odd red wine spillage. Each Medina Tangier Rug is made from up to 5,400 recycled plastic bottles.

The Weaver Green Medina Tangier Rug. Made entirely from recycled plastic bottles – nothing else!

Made entirely from up to 3000 recycled plastic bottles and with the soft feel of wool or Jute, Weaver Green rugs and textiles are machine washable, moth proof, easy to clean, mould resistant, UV stable, hardwearing and perfect for use indoors in kitchens, under dining tables, in bathrooms, hallways and outside on garden terraces and in summer houses.

Tasha and Barney Green were travelling in Asia and found a very rudimentary fishing rope made from unravelled plastic bottles being used to tether boats. Barney has a long history in the flooring industry, working with weaving houses throughout the world to develop and sell sisal, coir and wool rugs and fitted flooring, and Tasha runs an organic drinks company and organic orchard, and has collected antique textiles for many years. With a strong environmental ethos, both Barney and Tasha felt that there was an opportunity to turn some of the 135 billion plastic bottles that end up in our seas and landfill each year, into beautiful, practical rugs and home textiles that offered a great environmental solution to recycling some of the existing plastic in the world, and in making our homes more beautiful at the same time.

The key challenge has been to turn hard plastic into the lovely soft open fibres that we have today, so that the yarn genuinely has the look and feel of wool. This process has taken 7 years to perfect, and we now have a robust, soft yarn that is machine washable, stain resistant, suitable for indoor and outdoor use and most importantly environmentally friendly.

We hand loom all our lovely textiles and use artisans throughout Europe, Scandinavia and Asia to make gorgeous, soft handmade rugs, throws and bags.
