Why is it sustainable?
PineSkins Mat is a sustainable rug made with PineSkins, a vegan leather-like material made with the inner bark of pine trees.
This part of the tree is a by-product of tree-cutting. Therefore, the production of PineSkins is in line with a circular economy model, in that it takes an uninteresting material and makes it the star of mindful design pieces.
Holes & imperfections are highlighted with a wool filling and the rug is finished with a natural wax.
The bark is sourced locally (in Latvia) and hand-making takes place in Amsterdam.
