Namaste Zahira Recycled Bottle Outdoor Throw
Sometimes on wet West Wales days it seems impossible to believe sunny days at the beach will ever be a thing. But when the time comes it's best to be ready with one of these amazing fair trade Zahira throws. Made from discarded plastic bottles they are surprisingly soft while still having amazing practical features such as being machine washable, quick-drying, resistant to dust mites and UV and stain resistant. But as well as being super useful, they are also very stylish with their subtle colours and masses of retro fringing. We can't wait to take one on a swimming trip or camping or a picnic in the park. What will you do with yours?
100% PET Yarn made from recycled plastic bottles
Dimensions: 125 x 150cm
Care instructions: surface cleaning PET yarn with a damp cloth is recommended to maintain it in the best condition. Where a machine wash is required, accessories are available from major retailers to prevent shed fibres from entering the drainage system. Use a liquid detergent on a short, cool setting without fabric conditioner. Do not bleach, avoid vigorous spin cycles, hang to drip dry and reshape whilst damp. Tumble dry on low heat setting and use a moderately warm iron if required.
The extraordinary material used to make these throws reuses plastic waste already in circulation. Each throw uses approximately 200 - 300 bottles. As well as this, the GoodWeave label on this throw gives the best assurance that no child labour was used in its making. Our supplier Namaste and their suppliers both contribute a percentage of the value of the throws purchased to GoodWeave which then goes back into the communities where the throws are made. Namaste is a well-established Fair Trade supplier who also contributes to the charity Child Rescue Nepal. Namaste has helped over 100 producers to grow and develop in their 20 years of trading and, like us, are members of BAFTS Fair Trade Network UK.
