Recycled PET:
A Sustainable Alternative

Turning plastic into a beautiful series of outdoor textiles. Here is the story behind how it's done.

We are getting used to seeing images of plastic washing up on shores and turning into mountains of trash everywhere in the daily news. With a problem this big, it calls for clever solutions. Because plastic can be more than waste. With the help of specialized technology, designers are creating a series of textiles made entirely from used plastic bottles. This way, you get incredibly durable textiles while helping clean up the oceans.

292 Bottles – One Rug

Rugs, cushions, and mats made from plastic may not initially sound like you get textiles with a soft, lovely touch and feel. But the Way series won’t leave you longing for virgin wool. Not only is it practical, easily cleaned, and suitable for outdoor use, it also feels just as lovely as any other rug that comes your way.
