Up-cycled | Floor Mat | Linen
Asha : Eleven Upcycled - made using our garment offcuts (so they don't land up in land fill).
Handrcrafted by a lovely group of Malawian ladies who have come to Cape Town to seek a better lives for themselves but who have found the realities of South Africa's high unemployment crisis. It's a steady and well needed income which inspires their creativity and can be carried out in the comfort and ease of their homes.
Can be used as a bathroom mat, bedside mat, door mat and it's really great as a camping mat (put at the entrance to your tent and it shakes off dust and dirt really well without becoming too sodden) and a super portable dog bed (like when you pop to your friends for dinner and pooch needs a safe spot too!)
Each mat measures approximately 80cm by 50cm and then base is made using recycled sacks that would also otherwise land up in landfill. It washes ok - it won't look as good as new but it's absolutely fine to pop in the washing machine and once dry, shake it to fluff it up again.
Reduce. Reuse. UPcycle
