Handmade bamboo Ikat rugs by The Rug Company

Picture this rug at your house. So beautiful. Due to my fathers passion for handmade rugs I really love handmade rugs. The quality really is something else. They will last forever if you take good care of them. The Rug Company takes handmade rugs to a new level by adding beautiful design. The Rug Company recently launched this new Ikat collection. And you might be wondering what Ikat is: it´s an ancient dyeing technique that has this blurred look-often applied to silk fabrics, but here it´s bamboo. This makes me happy since bamboo is sustainable. It grows really fast, you don´t have to plant new plants since it keeps shooting ( it´s grass), it consumes carbon dioxide, you can use it like wood or make clothes. & the appearance is very similar to silk.

New brand on the way

I hope you all had a great weekend. I was at our summerhouse. We always do as little as possible like go to the beach, let the girls run around in the garden, go to the nearby fleamarket or work a bit in the garden. We always think that we get some peace & quietness up there, but there is always someone hanging out with their chainsaw or lawnmower nearby. But it´s nice & green with all our organic fruittrees.

Oh btw a new brand asked me if I was interested in showing some of their stuff here on the blog. I would always like to help out if I feel a connection. As an independent blogger I feel strongly about showing only what I like & appreciate on my blog. So now I am waiting to see if we are a match : )
