Natural Fiber Rugs by Armadillo x House of Grey

March 5, 2021

On our radar this month: Armadillo’s “Ellipse” collection of rugs, designed in collaboration with London-based design studio House of Grey. Made from materials such as jute, New Zealand wool, and pure silk, the rugs evoke their natural origin through organic tones, forms, and textures. According to the designers, the goal of the collection is to create pieces that “nurture a gentler pace of life” – something we could all use at the moment.

Let’s take a look.

The Aussie-born rug company is dedicated to transparency and eco-consciousness. Each rug is affixed with a Declare Label detailing how it is made, what it is made of, and where it goes at the end of its life. Ten percent of the proceeds from each sale go to the Armadillo Foundation, a nonprofit that funds environmental, educational, and healthcare initiatives for the communities involved in the rug’s production. Since 2014, the foundation has sponsored the Kantilal Vidya Mandir School in India, which educates many of the rug artisans’ children.
