Woven home decor - natural sustainability

Wednesday, 1 February 2017

Woven home decor is really on-trend for Spring 2017. From rugs to coffee tables, baskets to footstools, the natural and textured look is creeping into homes. Not to mention that it's making a big statement in the process. We love the way this trend works with so many types of interiors; at home in both modern and traditional settings, there really is no wrong way to do it.

At Myakka, we like to think we're always ahead of the latest trends. That's why, last autumn we started working with a new supplier based in Vietnam who specialises in woven home decor products, such as our Natural Hand Woven Pouffes. Weaving baskets, rugs and pouffes, they work using sustainable, locally available materials; sea grass water-hyacinth and corn husk to name but a few. They work with groups of local women, paying them a fair wage. This also ensures the continued wide use of traditional crafts and techniques today.

An initiative founded by a woman from a traditional crafting village, the cooperative provides local women with steady and reliable income. This helps them to support their families and provides them with a better way of life. The team creates eye-catching yet functional pieces that look great modern and traditional homes.

Ethically Sourced Woven Home Decor

Some of our favourite pieces include our best selling Natural Woven Round Rugs that have been crafted from rattan, cornhusk and water-hyacinth to help create rugs with a tonal circle pattern. The Natural Woven Baskets Set of 2 have again been woven from water-hyacinth and sea grass to create an attractive striped pattern. – perfect as laundry baskets or to keep the toys tidy.

And don't just take our word for it! Vogue and The Telegraph both think that textured, woven home decor is going to be big this year.
