People often ask how it came to be that a cider-maker and flooring specialist ended up making recycled plastic rugs and textiles from discarded plastic bottles. It’s a fair question, and one we’re only too happy to answer.
REINVENTING SUSTAINABLE LUXURY
It all started when the founders Tasha and Barney were travelling in Asia and stumbled across a very rudimentary fishing rope, made from unraveled plastic bottles, lids and all. Used to tether fishing boats, the rope was both strong and waterproof, and offered a moment of inspiration to the intrepid couple. Could they take some of the mountains of plastic waste that is polluting our seas and landfill and turn it into a useful and practical yarn?
THE EUREKA MOMENT
With a long history in the flooring industry, Barney was no stranger to the intricacies of weaving houses throughout the world, while Tasha’s organic drinks business and love of antique textiles gave the couple a strong environmental ethos. The opportunity to help clear up some of the 35 billion plastic bottles that end up in our seas and landfill every year was too good to miss so Tasha and Barney began exploring the many ways that this practical, robust material could be given a second, more long-term use within our homes and gardens.
