Biobased Canvas
When wind and sea interplay, this capricious pattern of ripples in the sand emerges. A silent proof of nature’s power and beauty. Exactly what this biobased rug embodies. Its character being rugged and vigorous. Being all natural with a 100% linen face pile and 100% jute backing, this rug is completely biodegradable. A rug that keeps attracting the eye, but leaves no trace.

At Donkersloot they believe they have a responsibility for the future. Creativity is not only used to make the thrilling designs. They challenge their way of production to change for more sustainability. Together, we can make the difference.

Rethinking the impact
No concessions are made in design nor sustainability. The flax fibres in the linen are grown in Europe, without the use of pesticides and have a natural tear-resistant property. Combined with the jute and specially selected raw materials for the compound makes Donkersloot Biobased fully biodegradable. This literally means the product is compostable. Thus, robustness and sustainability go hand in hand, allowing to make a sophisticated statement in design whilst contributing to a better future.

Natural beauty
Donkersloot Biobased is a natural product that behaves organically. The natural flax fibre in the linen gives the carpet durability, longevity, sustainability and a pearly shine as time passes. In all its elegance, it contributes to a comfortable indoor air quality through the linen fibres, which can regulate humidity and are ideally suited for under-floor heating.
