Slow design shifts our awareness to question what a product is made from and how it is made. At Armadillo, we value transparency above all. Each of our rugs is handcrafted with care and precision, using natural materials and energy-efficient processes – a gesture in patience that results in a truly unique, soulful product for the benefit of the individual as well as the planet.
Slow design prompts us to consider the appeal of a product beyond its obvious functions and aesthetic. Whilst practical and beautiful, our rugs are intended to bring a meaningful presence to daily life. Made for sensory enjoyment, they subtly shape our mood, energy and emotion, grounding us and balancing the overwhelm created by our busy, overstimulated, technology-driven lives.
Slow design encourages conscious consumption, prompting us to be more mindful about what we bring into our homes. In a world full of mass-produced, trend-driven products, we want individuals to purchase less but purchase well. Our homes should shine a light on what we truly value and that means acquiring only what is needed and will bring true joy.
