This Marre Plastic Rug 70x225cm from the Swedish textile design label pappelina was created by company founder Lina Rickardsson and will add a dash of Scandinavian aesthetic flair to bedrooms, bathrooms and outdoor spaces.
Hailing from the Swedish city of Falun, Rickardsson has one foot in the mainstream of the country's craft traditions and another in the waters of modern industry. Her textiles seek to use old-school craft techniques and the expertise behind them, using new materials to add extra properties like waterproofing and tensile strength. This Marre Plastic Rug 70x225cm is a great example.
Measuring 70cm wide by 225cm long, it has an attractive two-tone pattern of interlinked star-like shapes. Both ends are firmly hemmed, making the rug as strong as possible and helping to avoid premature fraying, while the body of the product is made from tough, lightweight plastic.
This looks the part, and also has some practical benefits. For instance, being easy to wash, this pappelina rug can be taken on the road to beaches, meadows or used on patios and beside pools. If it attracts a little dirt, a quick wipe will restore its original shine.
