Why is it sustainable?
Sintra is a rug made of upcycled cotton.
All Saudade rugs are crafted from fabric leftovers such as discontinued products, fabric surplus from cutting clothes, and unused spools from non-compliant batches.
The making process is manual and honours local (Portugal) traditional weaving crafts.
Being woven on both sides, Saudade rugs are reversible – an interesting strategy to extend their life even longer.
At Saudade, conventional packaging has been replaced with a reusable option. Products are shipped in a cover made from recycled materials (scraps from boat sails or old tarps) and can be sent back to the company for reuse.
