The inspirations for the Saarela carpet collection have been traditional Finnish rag rugs. A rag rug is an ecological and timeless luxury artifact, in which a visual and qualitative luxury is combined with set of values in design. Many megatrends of the future are combined in it: sustainable development, handicraft-like processes, slow design and the emphasis of locality both in design and production.

Saarela carpets are hand-made from recycled materials. The weft is hand-torn out of old clean sheets, curtains and tablecloths. The weft is not dyed, but the basis for the designs are the weft at hand, whatever color they might be at the time. Thus, the Saarela carpets are woven out of genuine rags, not of the ends of packs or other industrial textile. The warp is strong and durable polyester.

Because the carpets are woven out of recycled materials, each rug is individual and the colors and shades vary. The colors that have been beautifully faded in washings form harmonious combinations, and carpets suite easily into modern decor.

Pastel rag rug is 81 cm width and 180 cm lenght.

Taking care of your Saarela -carpet

- Vacuum your carpet regularly or dust it outside.
- Remove stains when they are fresh: wipe with damp cloth and soak into a dry one.
- Wash with warm water and pinewood liquid soap brushing according to the direction of the weft. Carpets should never be washed with a pressure washer.
- Rinse carefully with plenty of water and dry on an airy surface so that the water runs in the direction of the weft. Straight sunlight may fade the colors.
- Wash carpets on land, so that the dirty water will not run into bodies of water.

Because Saarela –carpets are made of old materials that have already been washed several times, there is no risk of shrinkage or spreading of colors.
