Manfred Barfuss: Hand-woven rugs made of recycled PET bottles
Manfred Barfuss’ Pro Natura Collection comprises hand-knotted (Eco Rug, Eco Shaggy), hand-tufted (Eco Loop) and hand-woven (Summertime) rugs made of a wool-like yarn derived from recycled PET bottles.
The Summertime product is hand-woven in India in a variety of very natural-looking yet vibrant shades. Usable on both sides both indoors and outdoors, these easy-care rugs are very popular with the public, according to Barfuss, and come in three sizes: 80 x 75 cm, 130 x 190 cm and 160 x 230 cm. Retailers can also make use of a special Summertime Box for presenting rolled up carpets at the POS, which is part of Manfred Barfuss’ ingeniously thought-out Pro Natura store concept.
