Striking Zulu objects adorn the lodges found on the picturesque Sabi Sands Reserve in South Africa. Here, the imperfect, diamond-like silhouettes of ihawu shields have been repeated for a graphic effect and rendered in timeless monochrome. A cut-pile background and contrasting looped motif bring dimension and textural interest to the design.

Comprised of uniquely plush recycled plastic, these hand-knotted rugs are a luxurious yet eco-conscious solution to the need for hard-wearing and stain-resistant rugs. Discarded polyethylene components – that would otherwise find their way into the ocean or landfill – are processed using heat and water (then itself recycled) to create a surprisingly soft and robust yarn. Its fine, matte appearance is almost indistinguishable from wool. However, the inherent qualities of the recycled plastic fibre offer even greater durability, resisting accidental spills and fading as well as being bleach cleanable.
Regular maintenance will always help to extend the life of your rug. If properly cared for, a hand-knotted rug will last for generations. You’re probably best heading over to our Rug Care Guide for general information and tips. For any specific queries, please contact our studio.
