If you have been following along, I hope you have gotten to know me by now! If so… you know that I have VERY high stands with what I bring into my home, our bodies, our minds etc.
I am always on the hunt for things that are
USA Made (or made in another sustainable country)
You get the picture…. I’m not your typical, what’s cheap, what can I find at target mom.
Almost two years ago, my husband and I bought our home, four months before Liam was born. I was very pregnant, and was in no mood to renovate, update or decorate.
After we had Liam, and I really got a sense of my personal style as a new mom, what was practical and functional as a family of 3 (well, okay 4 because I usually count Zeus.)
Our home is slowly becoming the minimal, modern, non-toxic, peaceful environment we have been striving for!
At the beginning of 2018, we ripped the rest of the carpet out of our house (we had done the living room and hallway prior to moving in,) because the carpets were TOXIC! Our home is almost 30 years old, and I would not be surprised if these carpets were original to the house.
No amount of professional carpet cleaning could help us out at this point, so they had to go! Now, between Zeus, Liam and any other future family members, I KNEW we were going to need a few amazing floor rugs.
So the search began, and this was my criteria.
Washable (preferably machine washable)
Made in USA or another Sustainable country
Local or Give Back (Meaning the company supports a non profit or employs the less fortunate.)
And of course, trendy, minimal and modern.
I turned to my typical search engine… Instagram. Where I very quickly stumbled upon Lorena Canals Rugs! The Jackpot lights were going off because I found everything on my check list in one company! (Plus I died when I found a rug in the shape of a house plant leaf.)
Handmade in India and designed in Spain (Which also means they are not sprayed with fire retardants, pesticides or formaldehyde.)
Machine washable and fit into a standard washer and dryer.
Natural dyes, eco friendly and contain no VOCs like typically carpeting and rugs
Proceeds support the Sakula Project and provide schooling for children in india.
Plus their home collection is great for adult and child spaces which meets my criteria for minimal, modern and trendy!
We have been VERY happy with our Lorena Canals Rug, and can’t wait to add another one to our home!
