Mater introduces their first collection of rugs

Inspired by nature and the duality of human impact on Earth, Mater moves into new grounds

Mater has recently expanded their collection beyond furniture into accessories, including a new series of handmade rugs, inspired by nature and the beautiful duality of the human impact on Mother Nature.

Named the ‘Info Rugs’, the patterns for the rugs were extracted from three photographs shot by the photographers at Foundation for Deep Ecology, an organisation that supports efforts to protect wilderness and wildlife.

Each photograph tells a heartfelt story that also conveys the environmental impact that humans are creating. The collection consists of three designs, each digitalised from the photographs and available in three sizes

IR01 is inspired by a photograph of the chemtrails caused by the busy air traffic over London. IR02 takes its design from the image of a thousand year old forest that was removed to make way for a new dam in Oregon. IR03, the largest rug in the collection, depicts a California oilfield.

- This collection is a new initiative and product line for Mater that speaks of a strong moral statement about our environmental awareness, while still being manufactured according to our ethical standards, explains Henrik Marstrand, founder and CEO.

The Info Rugs are handmade, using a traditional tufting technique, giving a soft, yet dense, 16 mm thickness. The designs are simple, with a calm colour palette - minimising the colour contamination in production by using un-dyed wool and very few colours to screen print the pattern, respecting the design, craftsmanship and the local environment.
