Have you ever dreamt of an eco-city where everyone rides around town on e-bikes and where cars are replaced with e-vehicles? This is the vision behind Lorena Canals' latest collection, Eco-City! Invite your kids to come for a walk around their very own eco-city where they can learn to create a greener future.
This Eco-City Washable Area Rug comes complete with its very own stop signs, traffic lights, trees, e-cars, bikes and even an EV charging station! The rug design plays with high and low cut piles to create a pattern of a city map with the streets outlined in natural colour, a fountain in aqua blue and parks in muted olive green. The borders feature woven contrasted stripes and are finished with short, tousled fringes.
This Eco-City collection includes washable rugs made from natural cotton and non-toxic dyes. Mix and match with fabric toys, cushions, poufs, wall pocket hanger and the cutest baskets, and watch the fun unfold in the comfort of your home. Let the kids get busy discovering a world of quiet vroom-vrooms while you sit back and relax knowing they are safe.
It started with one simple question that perhaps a lot of us parents have: 'Why can't we wash our kids' Rugs at home? That was enough to set Lorena Canals on a journey to come up with a solution. Lorena Canals started her company to fill the void of modern day living. Her Rug designs are stylish and practical. Made from 100% cotton, her Rug collection is machine-washable and is the new standard in the world of Rug design.
28 years later, Lorena Canals now operates out of offices in Barcelona and New York. Their Rugs are manufactured in two of their very own facilities in India where they have full control of the quality and best practices. Their designers work side by side with 120 artisans who take care of every detail in an elaborate handmade process. The brand prides itself on quality in every aspect of production, from the finest raw materials to socially responsible labour practices. Nowadays, Lorena Canals products are found worldwide in more than 2,500 points of sale, making its products available in more than 40 countries. Their offerings have expanded to include Home Decoration serving both children and grown-ups! A nursery funded by the SAKULA PROJECT now has 120 boys and girls attending and continues to grow year after year.
As you're probably aware, cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the cotton plant and grows commonly all over the world. It is a renewable and eco-friendly material that is easy to clean and maintain. Compared to wool, it is a less durable material due to its softer fibres and therefore, cannot take the pounding that wool Rugs can. However, cotton Rugs do offer an unparalleled feeling of softness, comfort and warmth. And cotton bares one important quality that wool Rugs cannot offer. It is completely machine washable!
