Braided rug – recycled plastic


Can you believe it? This handsome black and white braided rug is made from recycled plastic! It feels as soft as woven jute though, and is machine washable. It measures 61cm x 91cm and is perfect for your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or hallway. And you can use them outdoors too since they’re mildew resistant.

I was explaining in the jute braided rug listing, that the concept of braiding fabric to form a mat goes way back: Native Americans used the idea of plaiting yarn and sewing it together to make super strong saddle blankets and mats.  Their method was then adopted by American settlers and braided rugs became a popular household staple.
