The Hay Paper Mat is a small, practical mat designed by Merete Erbou Laurent. The clou: the small carpet is made of paper and it has two sides with different designs.
Merete Erbou Laurent is a French textile designer. She had the aim of weaving a decorative mat out of paper and used paper thread in fresh pastel tones, for a vivid style on the table.
Paper Mat with two sides
The paper mat has different appearances on both sides: One side is embossed by brown natural fibres and the other one displays the according pastel tone more powerful. With it, the Paper Mat can be used as small carpet or as placemat according to the event.
The contrast of colourful paper yarn and natural colours looks modern but it still suits in warm and natural atmospheres. The Paper Mat isn’t only utile on the floor, of course, but also as decorative coaster for candleholders or other accessories. It is also wonderfully suitable as organic contrast on glass tables or metal tables.
Production out of paper: More robust than expected
The Paper Mat is made of paper and it is coated with a protective layer. That’s the reason why the mat is especially resistant, dirt repellent and longevity.
