With over 35 billion plastic bottles finding their way into our seas each year and over 90% of all marine birds having plastic deposits in their stomachs, the founders of Weaver Green felt it was important to look at creative and useful ways of turning recycled plastic bottles into beautiful additions for our homes and everyday lives.
You’d never know it to touch or feel them, but the gorgeous Scandinavian style blankets and throws are hand woven from up to 300 recycled plastic bottles. Perfect for indoor life these soft, cosy blankets aren’t just great sofa throws but can also be used as outdoor blankets for picnics, beach days and long summer nights. Best of all, they’re stain resistant and easy to clean and a great choice for those with children, pets or a habit of spilling red wine.
Their wide range of environmentally-friendly, recycled rugs, feel just like wool, and are made in exactly the same way meaning everything from Weaver Green has helped prevent hundreds of single use plastic bottles from ending up in the ground or floating in the ocean.
Crafted from recycled man-made materials also means their items are moth resistant and won't attract dust mites making them a favourite with allergy sufferers. Practical, machine washable and hard wearing, the environmentally friendly range come in a choice of colours to perfectly compliment other soft furnishing and home accessories.
Being made from recycled plastic means all of the Weaver Green collections are absolutely perfect for use in kitchens, under dining tables, in bathrooms and hallways, as well as outside on garden terraces and in summer houses. You can even take our products to the beach or on a camping trip! Keeping mucky children, cats and dogs away from nice things is an impossible task, it’s in their DNA to ruin nice things. The good news is, their entire range of washable rugs, blankets, cushions and throws are immune to muddy paw prints, crayons and even drink stains.
Please note - the blankets feature a open weave that makes them soft to touch, this also means that the yarn may be susceptible to snagging, particularly if clawed by mischievous cats or dogs.
All in all, we think they’ve come up with the perfect combination of style, practicality and value to improve your home and help the planet all at the same time.
