Sustainability-initiative carpet

Net Effect modular carpet collection is inspired by the ocean’s power and its plight—marine life and habitats endangered by humans and climate change. The carpet is a result of Net-Works, a global business and conservation association between the company and the Zoological Society of London. The effort addresses the growing problem of discarded fishing nets.
