Raffia Rugs by Rose Tarlow Melrose House

For a laid-back, kick-off-your-shoes look just right for the  summer months, we’re loving the new collection of hand-crafted, richly textured raffia rugs recently launched by Rose Tarlow Melrose House. Inspired by traditional African mats, the collection offers three patterns—Kongo, Kuba, and Pende—in a choice of four earthy hues. Native to the tropics of Africa and Latin America, the raffia palm is both long-living and naturally regenerating, making its fiber particularly eco-friendly. Often used in its native environment for making ropes, supporting beams, and roofs, raffia certainly can handle anything your own rug rats might dish out. Hand-woven to order in any size up to 30 feet long, the rugs are available to the trade only with pricing on request. Contact information available at rosetarlow.com.
