A new collab from Melbourne-based brand Hali Rugs and Australian interior stylist Jason Grant sees a beautiful collection of sustainable rugs. Designed over 18 months, the pieces work indoors and out and they’re reversible!
Jason is known for his relaxed and natural, feel good Australian style and family-owned Hali Rugs has a 40-year heritage designing and sourcing handmade rugs from India and other countries around the world. Managing director Dan Swart worked closely with one of their trusted artisan suppliers and fabric mills to create a new, signature yarn for this project.
The range represents future possibilities in sustainability as the rugs are soft, tactile and feel like wool, yet they’re made from recycled plastic. The Hali team chose to turn the yarn into flat weave rugs rather than pile to accomplish this feat. Plastic bottles were collected from river systems and scrap heaps to reduce waste, and transformed with heat. Using only natural dyes throughout the manufacturing process, they managed to take something harmful to the environment and create a fabric that feels organic.
The versatile COAST collection can be styled around the home or outside on balconies, terraces and in gardens. They also come in specific sizes for wet areas like the kitchen or laundry. Made to be incredibly durable to ensure a long lifespan, you can simply wash them down with a pressure hose and hang them out to dry.
The collection has a fringe detail for added texture and prices start at $130. The muted palette of greens, blues, greys and soft pinks is inspired by nature.
COAST will be available later in May.
