Known for its sophisticated hand-crafted platform beds inspired by modern architecture, San Francisco-based Thuma recently introduced a sustainable rug to its manufacturing portfolio. Simply called The Rug, it continues the brand’s commitment to sustainability and eco-conscious production.
Each rug in the series is 100 per cent handmade in Panipat, India, through a process that involves sorting the materials, spinning and dyeing the yarn, weaving on traditional looms, delicately trimming, washing and finishing.
Three neutral colourways are available – Thunderstorm (light ivory), Silver (light grey) and Shadow (dark grey) – and the rugs are sized to complement Thuma’s king- and queen-sized beds.
Made from 50 per cent upcycled wool sweaters and 50 per cent plastic water bottles; approximately 43 garments and 412 bottles go into each 1.5-by-2.4-metre rug and upwards of 87 garments and 825 bottles go into the 2.4-by-3-metre versions. The wool is dyed before being spun into yarn to create a rich and long-lasting colour for the plush pile rugs.
