Waikiki and Braid are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Both carpets are made of natural and highly durable coir yarn. The rug’s rough surface texture gives it an archaic appearance and is pleasant for the feet, making them feel they are being massaged. By contrast with stone tiles and other kinds of floor tiles, coir rugs do not heat up so much when directly exposed to the sun, but remain pleasantly cool.
If the natural colour changes the carpet undergoes under the action of weather conditions are not a problem for you, Waikiki and Braid can even be left outdoors in a light summer shower or in bright sunshine.
