All of our Hand in Hand Rugs are made individually for each and everyone. Every Rug is woven by hand, so naturally some minor mistakes can occur during the production process.

Mostly the rugs arrive in a wrong color but are in perfect condition or some might be slightly uneven in the pattern. As we believe that these mistakes make these rugs even more unique and enhance the hand-made character we don't want to hold them back, but more so think they will make a great new roommate for you to enjoy.

Your are not only getting a cozy new roommate, but also are contributing to sustainability by fighting waste and buying something that already exists. 



Let’s bring some JOY into your home with your new favourite roommate: The Checkmate rug!

It is just what your house needs: a perfect mix of traditional craftsmanship and modern design. Something that catches everyone’s eye but still features a simple pattern so that you will take pleasure in it for a long time. Each rug is designed by our Hand In Hand founder Cloudy Zakrocki in consideration of classic aesthetics and current trends. Our creamy Checkmate rugs feature the perfect off-white in combination with another soft color, making it possible for you to enjoy the checkerboard pattern without going all in – but still giving your space more character. They are simply as sweet as your favourite ice cream flavour.

This amazing Checkmate rug is made of 100% natural sheep’s wool which has been animal friendly sourced and naturally dyed. There are plenty of benefits when using this natural and raw material: it cleans your air so is perfect against allergies, it is extremely durable so you’ll have this rug forever, it resists staining and soiling, it is a natural insulator, it is locally grown, sustainable and fire-safe, which makes it great for every room of your house, even kitchens and children’s rooms. If you want to learn more about the fabric and its benefits for you, check our FAQ page. 

All Hand In Hand rugs are woven by hand (!) by artisans outside of Casablanca. The artisans are experts on this very traditional knotting technique (which some of you might know from the Beni Ourain rugs that were so popular some years ago) and craft each rug individually for you. What is most important to us: The artisans receive a fair salary for their work and child work is strictly forbidden. This is why we hand-selected the manufacturer we are working with, guaranteeing safe and ethical work environments as well as above-average fair pay.

The Checkmate Rug is definitely a one of a kind piece that will be your favourite new roommate, promised! For more information, please check our worth knowing FAQ section or send us an email.

Yours truly, Cloudy X
