In another collaboration, Ella has produced a new range of natural flooring using only ecologically produced fibres from sustainable sources.

Natural Hyacinth, Kesav, Rati, Makai and Okra fibres are some of the softest, smoothest underfoot fibres of
all natural floor coverings as well as some of the strongest and most durable. The company claims that they  are also easy to clean, unlike sisal which stains easily or grass reed which needs watering.

The Naturals Collection is available in 15 colours, including new to the market brights such as rose, teal
and lily. Prices start from £699 (120x180cm).

Geo costs around £1,400
