Gypsy Rose Recycled Cotton Rug

Like many treehuggers who like pretty things, each time I find myself in Anthropologie my sensibilities tug in different directions. After catching sight of a tea cozy or quilt I'll think, "How sweet!" for a good ten seconds. Then I'll wonder whether a five-year-old made it and start thinking about all of the chemicals in its past. But for those who dig the updated French country/dilapidated ch√Ęteau look, this rug is a pleaser. I can't vouch for the working conditions or the dye toxicity, but this patchwork beauty is created from recycled cotton knits. Also, your purchase supports the Sundance Institute, which funds film and environmental projects. $75 - $315. :: Sundance Catalog
