Traditional Weaving Methods with Soft and Fresh Hues.
Traditional Design with Pastels Hues —
Entrepreneur Mervi Pesonen has been designing rugs for Finarte since 1996. An excellent, skilled weaver herself, she has created numerous best-selling articles for Finarte. Usva rug, which combines fresh and soft pastel hues with traditional weave design, is one of them.
The Beloved Rag Rugs—
The Finnish rag rugs were originally made from textile waste such as old clothes and bedsheets. All the memories of those textiles were woven in to the rugs. Maybe that’s why rag rugs have always been so close to Finnish hearts. We maintain to keep these traditional weaving techniques alive with new, fresh designs.
Recycled Materials —
At Finarte, we have always believed the best materials are already existing ones. That’s why all Finarte’s cotton rugs are made of either recycled or upcycled cotton. Using recycled cotton instead of new one saves 11 000 liters of water per 1kg.
Defining Sustainability —
Usva rug is made by skilled weavers in India, where the Finarte rug collection has been crafted for over 25 years. Our aim is to combine the local weaving heritage and the Nordic design sensibility to create a shared view on beauty and sustainability.
