Kids' Corner

I picked up the July 2012 issue of Home Beautiful (Australia) in the weekend and was happy to see so many Armadillo&Co rugs in the Kids' Corner feature on page 29.
Apologies to all Australians who have already finished reading the August issue....I swear, Australian magazines arrive in NZ via a cruise liner that takes in a tour of the Antarctic along the way.

Armadillo&Co 'Flower Weave Marigold'

These hemp flower rugs have been so popular. I have the Marigold and Dandelion in 1.55m and 2.15 diameter in stock at The Ivy House (my website is still being attended to by elves so apologies for lack of a link).
You can email me at annie@theivyhouse.co.nz.

Armadillo&Co 'Pebble Weave' in Limestone

Armadillo&Co 'Stratum Band Width Stripe' in Wheat/White

Armadillo&Co 'Stratum Band Width Stripe' in Black/White

The Armadillo&Co range is made under Fair Trade conditions, is crafted from sustainable natural fibres  and all rugs carry the KALEEN label, certifying that no child labour is used in the manufacture of the rugs.
All purchases benefit local schools in the weavers' villages.
And if that doesn't make you feel good enough, they look good too!

  1. Hello Annie:
    The rugs do indeed look very splendid. Clearly, hard wearing and attractive, they do seem to be a wise choice for so many areas of the house. And, how reassuring to know that they have been made under fair trade terms.

  2. These rugs are just gorgeous... our little Auckland house so needed some rug love - as does our current home. If only I still lived around the corner.

    I know what you mean about the mags and the Tasman Sea - it drove me mad. Used to get them shipped over by the husband - we'd have annoying conversations with him standing in front of the mag stand at the airport in a confused state! "House Beautiful? No Home. Unreal what? Real Living. May? No, June. June!"

  3. Love them all, and also those cool Pony Rider cushions. Will pick up a copy of Home Beautiful, looks like a good one. x

  4. fantastic post and Thanks for sharing this info. It's very helpful.
