As far as ethical homewares are concerned, you can’t look past this Dhurrie rug. Made from pieces of recycled material, handwoven by artisans, this is not just a rug but a real show-stopper with a story to tell. Perfect for contemporary living rooms and bedrooms, this multicoloured rug with diamond pattern is a slice of India in your own home.

India has a massive rag trade, involving, it is estimated, about three million rag-pickers or ‘raddiwallahs’ as they are known. Households are usually paid according to the amount they collect, giving them an incentive to do so, as opposed to simply sending to landfill. However, huge amounts of textile waste still ends up in landfill. Buying this product helps reduce this landfill burden, and supports grass roots projects that enable struggling artisans learn the tools they need to set up business and trade themselves out of poverty.

Perfect for contemporary living rooms and bedrooms, this multicoloured rug with diamond pattern is a slice of India in your own home.
