Ever since Weaver Green perfected a method for recycling single use plastic bottles into beautiful, soft woven textiles we’ve made it our mission to create gorgeous products that you would choose regardless of their environmental credentials.
Our washable indoor and outdoor rugs, bags, cushions, footstools and blankets are influenced by our love for Scandinavian, African and Eastern design, combining soft yellows, reds, blues, and greys with natural tones to make timeless products that look great throughout the home.
With over 35 billion plastic bottles finding their way into our seas each year and over 90% of all marine birds having plastic deposits in their stomachs, we felt it was important to look at creative and useful ways of turning recycled plastic bottles into beautiful additions for our homes and everyday lives.
Our range of environmentally-friendly, recycled rugs look and feel just like wool, but contain up to 3000 salvaged plastic bottles each. All of our products are made in exactly the same way meaning everything we sell has helped prevent hundreds of single use plastic bottles from ending up in the ground or floating in the ocean.
We avoid using any toxic dyes and use a closed water system in all of our yarn production. This means all of our products are washed and dyed with the same refiltered water rather than using new water supplies and releasing unfiltered water into the sewerage system. We even heat our dye baths by burning recycled wheat and rice husks in a low emission boiler.
