I have been on the hunt for a cozy rug for my sofa area for a while now, so when I was approached by Sukhi and started looking at their selection of beautiful rugs I was so pleased to find the perfect one for my home. Their fairtrade felt ball rugs have the perfect Scandinavian look, they are not only cozy but also eco-friendly, ethical and handcrafted especially for you.
I decided on the minimal Shirisha felt ball rug, with a round shape that fits under my coffee table. It is white with a clean look, complimenting my light wooden floor and the light grey sofa. My rug took about 4 weeks to arrive and was handmade by a lady in Nepal named Mamta Tamang. A lovely detail when it came was the little note showing me who made it, adding a personal touch and making me love the rug even more.
It is so soft and comfy, my little puppy loves laying on it.
I am so happy with the rug, it feels very soft when walking on it and adds a lovely hygge feeling to my cozy corner. Even more so, I was pleased to work with a great company like Sukhi and so excited to showcase the pretty rug and their story with you.
Each felt ball rug is made of hundreds or thousands of little hand-rolled and sun-dried balls of pure wool using only natural dyes. You can see the process in the video below, it is very impressive.
A little bit about the company: Sukhi means ‘happy’ in Nepali and they are a social enterprise selling high-quality design rugs, beautifully made from natural materials by artisans in Nepal, Turkey, India, and Morocco. Each rug is unique, you get to choose your preferred size, shape, design and colours so that it fits your home and personal style. Click through to find all the rug collections available.
Here are a few of my favorites from their range:
“We believe that the talented people who make Sukhi rugs should have great pay and excellent working conditions. In this way, you can buy a beautiful rug while knowing that the artisan making it is being treated fairly.” – Sukhi
*I was sent a rug for review purposes by Sukhi, but all the thoughts and opinions are my own.
