Can you gift wrap my order?

Are your rugs, cushions, cooler bags vegan friendly?

No, our picnic rugs and older style large cushions have a leather logo tag attached. New large cushions now have a woven label.  We do however offer a vegan friendly option by carefully removing the leather tag and recycling it before sending it out to you. This process incurs no damage to the product at all. Please advise via email to our customer service team at hello@wanderingfolk.com before purchasing if you wish for your order to be vegan friendly.

Our small cushions are vegan friendly with a woven label.

Only our new 2021 Sage cooler bag is vegan. We cannot offer the other cooler bags as vegan friendly as the leather cannot be removed.

*Note- No return or exchange on items with leather labels removed at your request.

Where are Wandering Folk rugs 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, 6 years ago. Sharnee has visited the factory numerous times (pre-covid!) and intends on continuing our strong relationship.

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.

Why are Wandering Folk rugs valued at such a high price point?

Our rugs are ethically handmade to last a life-time of picnics with two layers of heavy duty cotton canvas- the bottom layer has waterproof treatment so you can sit on damp ground, the top layer is digitally printed which is better for the environment and takes more time than other printing methods.

All prints are hand-drawn by owner Sharnee Thorpe, it's a piece of art that she works on for weeks, sometimes months. A UPF coating is applied over the top to slow down the print fade on the cotton. The chunky cotton tassels are also hand made and hand dyed.
