Due to Scandinavian tradition, we do not wear shoes indoors.. We do not bring the dirt indoors.
During winters, we have thick socks or slippers to keep warm. Most houses have ultramodern central heating systems, but we have a huge crush on our open stoves, and we often have floor heating as an addition.
We normally refuse carpets when its a bacteria trap (yes we are a bit OCD:) so.. we are addicted to washable mats!- and we happily exchange them with moods and seasons too.
I got my Brita of Sweden mats in Sweden and brought them aaall the way to Perth..Because back then it was impossible to find practical & designed patterned mats in Australia!
Brita of Sweden's reversible mats are made by soft plastic foil with a mixture of new and recycled plastics. Also less allergens when it releases no fibers!
Lovely to look at, lovely to play on, both for indoors & outdoors and machine washable!
They weight close to nothing and takes no space so easy to store to next season.. You can also find high quality blankets, curtains etc..
I want more,more, more! BritaofSweden releases new retro patterns in fresh colors each season.
Now you can find them in Australia too at the Swedish on-line shop royaldesign!
Well, they'll just set you back a few more bucks over here:)
