We were mesmerised when we were shown by the crew at Weaver Green how they turn everyday plastic bottles into beautiful rugs and bags. Yes, we are not making this up - Weaver Green makes beautiful, soft, handwoven indoor and outdoor rugs and textiles from yarn spun entirely from recycled plastic bottles!!!
With over 30 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 recycling plastic bottles and making them into valuable and beautiful additions to our homes. Their range of environmentally friendly Weaver Green rugs look and feel like wool, but contain between 50 and 750 recycled plastic bottles each.
They only use weaving houses committed to employing skilled adults, who are paid fairly and enjoy comfortable and fair working conditions. Environmentally friendly, ethically produced, practical and gorgeous rugs and textiles – perfect for your home and garden. Look out for beautiful new designs coming soon.
