Amazing personal service. A beautifully soft and well made rug - and it was delivered by a nice man in a uniform!

Craft

Every knot, tuft and weave that goes into creating your work of floor art is done by the skilled hand of our artisan weavers.

Artists within their own right, they use ancient techniques passed on through generations and unchanged over time, and so the story of each rug is a complete circle of collaboration. From the graphic artists that use modern techniques to produce each design, The Knot Collective which guide the creative process and then finally the real magic when each design comes to life on the loom.

Reaching across the globe everyone involved in this story stays true to the mindset of slow design, creating our rugs from sustainable materials and using production processes that impact to create positive changes for the environment and human population.

Recycling single-use plastic into rugs

The Knot Collective mission is taking on the daunting reality of the continuous rise of plastic waste. Owning just one Knot Collective rug comes with the knowledge that you have diverted well over 3,000 plastic bottles away from being dumped on planet earth.

We’ve spent years sourcing the highest quality recycled plastic yarn we could find and it is indistinguishable from wool.

It’s soft the touch, easy to clean and far more light resistant than its counterpart and you’ll never have a problem with moths.

The recycled plastic yarn fibres within each rug are naturally stain-resistant and do not require the chemical treatments used on most nylon carpets, they also retain colour and resist fading from exposure to the sun or harsh cleaning.

Producing the yarn from an existing manufactured product means we do not need to use precious hydrocarbons to make the polyester material.  Reducing energy consumption for manufacturing by 66%, reducing green house gas emissions by over 34% and reducing water consumption by nearly 50%.

Your rug will empower the fight to end child labour

There are currently 152 million children who are suffering due to enforced child labour. The choices we make as consumers help determine whether these children are free to have a real childhood or be forced into labour or slavery. Will their hands paint, draw and colour - or harvest, sew and glue? We hold the power to make a change.

As a partner of Goodweave, The Knot Collective is fully opposed to child labour of any nature and ensures your rug is ethically made by adult artisans.

A portion of our profits from every rug sold is donated back into GoodWeave helping to fulfill their mission to create a market demand for certified child-labour free rugs, monitor supply chains and provide critical services for weaving families.
