These beautiful environmentally friendly throws are made from recycled plastic bottles! But don’t be fooled these are soft and luxurious to the touch.
At Namaste they are passionate about ensuring their products where possible are made from environmentally friendly, sustainable and recycled materials and they are strong believers that by helping to create a market that encourages the recycling and reusing of plastic bottles it will reduce the negative impact they are continuing to have on our natural environment.
Once collected the plastic which was destined for land fill or our oceans is shredded into small flakes, melted, extruded and then spun into polyester yarn and thread, not only resulting in a wonderfully versatile textile that is soft and luxurious to touch, but resulting in a fantastic, recycled, environmentally friendly textile worth talking about!

These throws are certified by GoodWeave.
GoodWeave aims to stop child labour in the carpet industry and to replicate its market-based approach in other sectors.
The GoodWeave label is the best assurance that no child labour was used in the making of your rug. In order to earn the GoodWeave label, rug exporters and importers must be licensed under the GoodWeave certification program and sign a legally binding contract to adhere to GoodWeave’s no-child-labour standard; allow unannounced random inspections by local inspectors; and pay a licensing fee that helps support GoodWeave’s monitoring, inspections and education programs.
Each certified rug features a numbered label on the reverse that can be traced back to the producer, linking you directly to the lives at the other end of the supply chain.
Buying a Goodweave certified rug supports educational opportunities for children in India who might otherwise be required to work. Handcrafted by adult artisans, these rugs make a beautiful statement at home & make the world a better place.

We believe in kindness – to ourselves, others, our planet and the many wonderful plants and creatures we share it with. Our aim is to gather together the very best plastic free, zero waste and eco-friendly products out there to give you a helping hand on your journey to being more sustainable.
We only use suppliers who, like us, are eco-friendly, plastic free and ethical. The bees at the Vera-Bee hive personally research and test each and every product and we only stock the things we really love and think you will love too. All our products are palm oil-free, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly (the only non-vegan products we stock are the Beeswax Wraps and Shade sunscreen which contain beeswax). All our packaging is recyclable and we reuse as much as possible, including packaging from our suppliers and off-cuts from our fabrics.
