The Noa Plastic Rug 70x90cm from pappelina was created by the prominent Swedish textiles expert Lina Rickardsson and represents a stunning fusion of modern materials with age-old Scandinavian weaving traditions.
Rickardsson's work is famous for bridging the divide between two worlds. She wants to keep alive the craft traditions of her native Falun region, such as hand weaving. However, she also seeks to use the right materials for the task, including plastics if required. Products like the PVC Noa Plastic Rug 70x90cm show how effective such an approach can be.
As with all pappelina rugs, this Noa design features an appealing pattern. In this case, Rickardsson has created an arrangement of dots and brightly coloured hems that complement a square-shaped rug. The rug itself measures 70 x 90 cm and is made from hand-woven plastic. This material gives the rug strength, allows the user to clean it easily and presents a pleasant, soft surface for bare feet (it's ideal for use as a children's play mat).
In addition to these qualities, the Noa Plastic Rug 70x90cm is reversible and even has dirt repellent properties, making it extremely convenient to maintain.
