A rug from Pappelina is exclusively woven from the purest plastic ribbons made in Sweden. Our plastic rugs contain no phthalates nor hazardous substance. We guarantee this by using only Swedish plastic raw material sourced from Gislaved Folie AB, a company that is certified according to the international standardizations ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
The plastic we use is approved for use in the food industry and to produce toys in both the EU and the US. PVC is a plastic that can be melted down and recycled. But since it is not possible to guarantee that recycled plastic is completely non-toxic, as virgin material always is, we choose to manufacture our rugs with new Swedish raw material.
