Fabrics made out of recycled plastic bottles, how amazing is that! My Visit to Weaver Green

Updated: Apr 4

Earlier in the season I had the privilege to take a lovely trip down to Devon, I was visiting the Weaver Green showroom, in the Heron Valley. The staff were extremely welcoming and I was able to get my hands on all of their ever evolving range to add products to my lovely eco friendly range of products for the home. All of the Weaver Green products are made from recycled plastic bottles, a fantastic use of all of those bottles that otherwise would have ended up in landfill or in our Oceans!


What made me decide to stock Weaver Green in the first place? Well I was exploring the various eco friendly products on the market and came across these, I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing so had to get my hands on them to check out the quality. I fell in love with the products and just love the fact that they have found a use for just some of those waste plastic bottles in the world. They have now as a company recycled over 170 million bottles - how awesome is that! I get many compliments on the comprehensive range that I stock now including some of the smaller rugs up to the 180cm x 120cm rugs and the 240cm x 70cm runners.


At all the events I do the expression on peoples faces of disbelief when they read the sign saying "made from 100% recycled plastic bottles" is certainly a conversation starter. These products make people smile and people love the fact that they are helping the planet in some small way to combat the single use plastic issue (their beautiful rug or blanket has turned a singl


e use item into an item that will last and be enjoyed for years). The products are not only hard wearing, machine washable, dust, mite and UV resistent but they look and feel like wool and linen. As you can tell I just love them!


This picture shows the Polperro striped rugs, a great high quality, hard wearing, machine washable rug perfect for use in the bedroom or bathroom. I love these and have some on their way to me now so that I can share them with you at my forthcoming events.



On my visit I was also able to top up my Diamond Blankets, Herringbone Blankets and Oxford Stripe Blanket stocks so that I will have some of each colour and weave for my customers to see in the flesh.


With the help of some lovely new photos I've managed to update my website for all the blankets and throws that we have available, each one now has some additional photos to show the individual colours in all their glory.

I couldn't resist the new range of Madras Cushions to compliment the very popular Madras Check throws that I already sell so here's a picture of them as a sneak preview, make room on your sofa or bed they're on their way!





So all you eco conscious individuals if you're ever in the Kingsbridge area make time for a cuppa and a browse around the Weaver Green showroom and cafe, a lovely experience to enjoy with friends and family a visit is highly recommended.
