FROM WASTE TO VALUE
Fishing nets is a major cause of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and naturally is a great threat to the world’s ecosystem and our health. In fact, it is estimated, that fishing nets account for 46% of all plastic in the ocean. If fishing nets are left in nature it drifts around setting a permanent mark by its mere presence. Nature suffers as well as us.
At MUUBS, we dream of a more sustainable world, which is why we, with a deep devotion to the health of our planet, have created carpets made from discarded and regenerated fishing nets.
A SUSTAINABLE CARPET
MUUBS have in collaboration with Egetæpper created a series of carpets made of nylon yarn produces by used fishing nets found drifting around the earth’s oceans. The collection consists of four carpets, each with a unique design. The 2nd generation of regenerated carpets designed by MUUBS are called Moon and Earth and is available exclusively at MUUBS. They are inspired by the surface of the Moon and Earth, just as our popular Luna Vases.
At MUUBS, we want to be able to offer different options to our customer. This allows them to take part in our vision of a better world where we together fight to minimize the environmental footprint of plastic pollution and waste. We do this with unique high-end design produced from reused, upcycled and sustainable material, showing how waste can become valuable and beautiful interior design.
