So many elements create the atmosphere of a room. The artwork, the furniture, the colours and - let's not forget this one - the floor. Our rugs are chosen to complement your rooms. Not your average area rug, they are 100% recycled and are handwoven outside Johannesburg in a sustainable, zero-carbon-footprint community.
The cotton and leather are pre-dyed, pre-shrunk, and machine-washable (yes, even the leather).
Each product is a unique, handmade rug woven in South Africa.
The Story of The Kaya Collection
In Zulu, the word 'Kaya' means 'Home'. The magic of "Kaya Means Home" started 28 years ago, when Else Cloete, a single mom and entrepreneur dedicated to the art of recycling, upcycling, and sustainable living, saw the rugs in Swaziland, Southern Africa. Else loved the concept of training, employing, and thereby empowering a local community, giving the women of a community a skill so that they could feed and educate their children. From this idea, Kaya Means Home was born.
It started with 5 staff and 2 looms. It has grown into a family-run business and have a facility of 100 looms that not only uses recycled cotton and leather for the textiles but also recycles paper and glass.
Our assortment includes use in: Tableware, Bathroom, Bedroom and Living Area with sizes ranging from 11" x 11" to 6 ft 6 in x 9 ft 10 in.
