Hug Rug Woven collection at Pepper Sq: rugs, throws, cushions and dog beds.
Hug Rug Woven have been recycling plastic bottles for over 10 years and are delighted to be recycling so many more by bringing you this beautiful range of rugs, throws and cushions made 100% from recycled plastics salvaged from the ocean and from land – how clever is that?!
Some "harsh facts" from our friends at Hug Rug Woven definitely made us feel stronger about recycling:
• Bottles of water take 1000 years to biodegrade and if incinerated they produce toxic fumes.
• 75% of plastic bottles are not recycled just thrown away!
• Plastic pieces in the sea now outnumber sealife by 6:1.
• Bottles thrown away each year could circle the earth 4 times!

We have teamed up with Lizzie Mosley, Hug Rug's Creative Director to learn more about brand.
Why did you choose to call the products Hug Rug Woven?
L.M. "We've had a sustainable Hug Rug mat brand for over 12 years, which is all manufactured from recycled cotton and plastic bottles. The Hug Rug Woven brand came about when we found a yarn made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and decided to create a range of woven products that fit with the Hug Rug family. And unlike our other rugs, which are tufted, these products are woven from the recycled yarn."
Lizzie Mosley, Hug Rug's Creative Director
What was your idea behind the product range?
L.M. "Sustainability, we wanted a range of products to keep inline with and expand our Hug Rug brand. People no longer want something that's using scarce resources and not environmentally friendly. Having found this wonderful recycled bottle yarn, we tested several different products and originally started with rugs and then expanded into throws and cushions to match, and eventually even dog beds."
What does sustainability mean to you?
L.M "As a British manufacturer we're constantly investing and developing products and processes to improve performance and lessen our environmental impact. Wherever possible we look to up-cycle materials to create our beautiful products. Sustainability is our future, and caring about the environment is at the centre of everything we do and we strive to make our mills and products as sustainable as possible"
What’s your favourite Hug Rug Woven product, pattern? And why?
L.M. "That's tough one! But I do love the herringbone throw in the new denim blue. They're super soft and cosy, and it's unbelievable to think they're made out of recycled plastic. And who doesn't love a zig zag?!"
