Dedicated to craftsmanship and ethical design, Armadillo & Co’s sumptuous rugs are made to elevate every space. Combining modern designs with the charm of decades past, each piece is crafted by hand, preserving a lineage of craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations.
With traditional manufacturing methods core to the brand, founders Sally Pottharst and Jodie Fried use design and materiality to connect each rug to a quintessentially Australian context. Focused on relaxed living and coastal sensibilities, these are rugs that are made to be used, with neutral colours worked in materials that offer luxury and usability.
One of our favourite pieces from their collection, the Agra Rug speaks to easy elegance and contemporary styling. Made in a sumptuous deep cut pile, the rug feels beautiful underfoot, taking your living space to the next level. Worked in a single colour with tonal complexities, the rug changes with the light, bringing life and character to every space.
Versatile and timeless, you can also rest easy knowing the rug is part of Pottharst and Fried’s commitment to sustainability and ethical manufacturing. Proud supporters of Care & Fair (an initiative against child labour in the carpet industry), proceeds from each sale are donated to The Armadillo & Co Foundation, which is dedicated to building a brighter future for children in the villages where the rugs are made.
