STUDIO KNOT -
"UNWASTED", The Eco Rug Collection
I collaborated with STUDIO KNOT on 9 limited edition handwoven art rugs for their 2nd collection: "UNWASTED, The Eco Rug Collection".
These soft, ethical rugs are hand tufted by artisan weavers in India
and made of 100% recycled material diverted from landfills.
The rugs bear the Goodweave International label ensuring that
no child labour has been used on any of them. A portion of the rug sale goes back into Goodweave to rescue children from slavery within the rug industry.
As a designer, if you've worked for brands on the high street or fast-fashion, you are aware the products you're involved with aren't always ethical - just to meet price points. This won't go away completely, but it's great to work with a company who are trying to make steps to change that.
