Dael & I love to use rugs from Armadillo&Co for our clients. They come in a range of show-stopping patterns and colours, and each rug is custom made for it's owner. You choose the pattern/style of rug, and the colours. They can be made any size you want (max. 4 x10 m), and in any shape (rectangular, round, oval, or cut to a specific shape). The cost is calculated per m2.
Founded by Jodie Fried & Sally Pottharst in Melbourne, 2009, the aim was for their rugs to lie lightly on this earth. Every piece embraces Fair Trade practices, and is crafted from sustainable natural fibres including pure wool, jute, cotton and hemp. All purchases benefit local schools in the weavers' Indian villages.
I hope you don't mind the amount of photos I've included in this post, but I really wanted to show you a good range of the options available. This only scrapes the surface though, there are many more. If anyone is interested in more information about purchasing an Armadillo&Co rug, please contact me - I'd love to help.

As I said, this is just a small selection. I have chosen my favourites, and you know I love colour & pattern. There are lots of neutral, earthy rugs if that is more your style.
