Intrepid Home brings Saudi Style to the picnic blanket

The picnic rug from Intrepid Home is a charming and practical solution for outdoor dining.

Handmade in Saudi Arabia and distributed internationally by New Zealand’s Intrepid Home, the rugs are hardwearing, water-resistant and available in over 20 different design choices.

Able to be rolled up with a handle for transportation, the polyester and canvas mix picnic rugs are adaptable enough to flatter all occasions, from a picnic on the beach to a day in the snow.

The rug comes from Richard Hoggard and Emma Robertson, who returned to New Zealand in 2013 to establish Intrepid Home following years of international travel.

The luxury homewares brand is operated out of the duo’s Hawke’s Bay home, and features a range of exotic goods inspired and sourced from people and places across the world.

Not content with simple being great design though, Intrepid Home donates a percentage of its annual turnover to Africa Food For Thought, South Africa – An organisation that starts feeding programmes in needy communities across Africa.
