Ethically handmade in partnership with Care and Fair
Makalu is a contemporary design with a strong finish — a clean, fresh take on the diamond within a diamond motif of Berber rugs.
Made from 70% Himalayan Wool and 30% Cotton, Makalu is soft and warm underfoot, and will bring dimension to any room it features in — in both high-traffic or low-traffic areas.
Makalu Basalt is warm beige with flecks of brown and off-white with black diamond shapes that add contrast to the overall finish.
The Makalu rug is available in 2m x 3m and features a full cotton backing and edging for improved longevity and wear.
Created by craftsmen using artisan skills, all rugs are individually handmade. As a result, our rugs can vary by 5% from the size ordered.

We recommend a non-slip underlay should always be placed under rugs. It will stop the rug slipping, create more depth underfoot and lessen wear on the rug. It also prevents the risk of dye transfer to the under surface and helps protect timber flooring. Sun exposure for extended periods of time may cause fading. Items should be rotated regularly to minimise colour change and damage. It is best to vacuum your rug before any dirt is embedded, ideally twice a week in the first few months. Vacuum regularly with low suction power. Avoid direct sunlight where possible. Shedding of fibres from new rugs is to be expected and will reduce with time. Note: jute colour will vary due to the natural fibre variation and should be expected from rug to rug.
We recommend treating spots and spills immediately with warm water and paper towel. If the stain persists, contact a professional rug cleaner as soon as possible. Do not scrub rugs as it may cause permanent pile damage.
