Indian Indigo block printed rug. Handwoven with a traditional loom, our talented artisans spent a considerable amount of time and skill crafting this piece. Each block of fabric was printed and crafted individually, with invaluable, indigenous indigo dye. Boasting a bohemian, twisted tassel finish.
The rich, highly pigmented natural dye was even traded to the Greeks and Romans, where it was considered a true luxury.
Bring that same luxurious fabric into your own home with this handwoven indigo rug. Durable and washable, your authentic Indian rug can withstand heavy use, such as from pets and children.
This Monkey Puzzle design has an extra-special place in our hearts. Co-founder Amy expresses her adoration for these (sadly) endangered trees by planting one in her garden. The gorgeous tree is Amy's childhood favourite. She was raised in the outskirts of London in what she describes had a "magical, enchanted monkey puzzle forest." It became the first Latin translation of a tree she ever learned too! (Araucaria araucana)
