Objects of Design #48: Reindeer Rug

Reindeer Rug From


Now if this isn’t going to warm those toes of a morning, I don’t know what will. Might just be the encouragement you need to sit up in bed if not actually walk to the bathroom. Obviously each one is unique and would sit just as happily on the bed or slung over a chair.

The rugs come from the Sami in Lapland, who herd reindeer as a way of living. The rest of the animal provides them with food and clothing. £120
