How do I clean my ‘Picnic Rug’

- Spot clean with cold water

- Do not submerge or soak

- We do not recommend machine washing, but if you do wash on a cold gentle cycle with a natural detergent and tie  your tassels up with an elastic band.

- Do not leave in direct sunlight

- Prior to storing, ensure it is completely dry

- If you have one of our older styles with a leather logo label, be aware if you fully submerge your picnic rug the dye will run onto the rug.

Will the print fade?

Over a long amount of time, your rug will most likely fade a little. To avoid this, do not leave your rug in direct sunlight all day, make sure to store your rug away once finished with it.

We have also introduced a new fabrication option to the printed top side of our rugs - 100% recycled PET canvas, that’s fade proof and water resistant. Eventually all of our rugs will transition to this new recycled PET fibre.

How do I roll my rug?

What is the difference between a ‘Picnic Rug’ and ‘Woven Throw’ ?

Our Picnic Rugs are made out of a durable cotton canvas, which makes them water resistant - Good for outdoor picnics. The rugs also have a beautiful print, designed by our founder Sharnee Thorpe, this makes them extra special!

Where as, our Woven Throw is made out of 100% recycled cotton, giving it a more light feel, perfect for picnics or soft furnishings. The woven patterns are also original artworks by Sharnee Thorpe.

You can watch a helpful video here to find out more!

Where are your products made?

The process begins in our headquarters here in Byron Bay, NSW. Owner Sharnee Thorpe sketches each individual print and designs the rugs with love and care. Her designs are then sent to our amazing family run factory in China who we have worked very closely with since the beginning, 9 years ago. Sharnee has visited the factory numerous times (pre-covid!) and intends on continuing our strong relationship.

Our Lovers Picnic Basket honours the traditional craft of weaving, allowing us the chance to work with artisan Women in Vietnam. Perfectly imperfect, we embrace the unique character of our handmade baskets, each with its own unique shape and imperfections.

Are your picnic rugs manufactured sustainably?

Each Picnic rug is digitally printed in one piece. Digital printing is the most sustainable way of printing, as it uses a lot less water than any other printing method. The printing method and inks plus the UPF/Waterproofing treatment are all R.E.A.C.H compliant, which means that they
do not harm you or the environment.

We have introduced a new fabrication to the printed top side of our rugs - NEW 100% recycled PET canvas that’s fade proof and water resistant. Eventually all of our rugs will transition to this new fibre.
