Brand new eco friendly range
Our brand new Associated Weavers "Sedna" carpet range is not only super soft, gorgeous and durable but it also saves sea lives by being eco friendly.
You're probably wondering how carpet can be eco friendly...? Well, let me tell you how!
"Sedna" is made with regenerated nylon. This means Associated Weavers (AW) have used a yarn from recycled waste material, including old carpets and deserted fishing nets from the bottom of the sea. Therefore, in doing this the "Sedna" carpet range helps save thousands of sea creatures such as sea turtles, dolphins and seals, as they'll no longer get trapped in life-threatening waste.
Even down to the backing of the carpet is eco friendly. "Sedna" carpet has a ECO FusionBac textile backing which is made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles; cleaning up the seas of unwanted plastic.
The image below shows the "yara" carpet. As you can see from the photo, it is a luxurious carpet which makes the room cosy and homely this is due to its 22mm saxony pile. The two carpet designs AW Sedna do are "yara" and "Varuna".
Ghost fishing nets:
Shocking right? Deserted fishing nets account for one-tenth of marine litter worldwide. If you think about it, this is excluding plastic bottles, cans, glass bottles, fishing wire, sewage waste, plastic packets, plastic bags, packaging, bubble wrap, plastic casing etc.. the list goes on. As Associated Weavers is a UK based company, this worldwide issue is happening on your door steps. Which means you can do something about it.
So as a company we whole heartedly support Associated Weavers new range "Sedna", as targeting specific waste are positive steps into shrinking that list sea creatures have to battle with daily. By simply buying your carpet from this range you're saving sea creatures from a slow suffocating death and supporting us as a local business. Together we will save sea creatures lives.
