Explore the World with Cities from Louis De Poortere

Inspired by the world’s most famous cities, the design team at Louis De Poortere have created a series of five rug designs inspired by the cartography of the urban landscape.

Interpreting the cartography and unique waterways of New York, Tokyo, London, Amsterdam and Paris in Jacquard woven rugs, Cities is the Ecorugs collection from Louis De Poortere that brings a unique reference to the offices and businesses of the world’s most famous cities.

In Conductive Blue, Gatsby Gold, Green Meadows, Space Trip and Orange Cut, businesses can echo the vibrant cultures and unique sense of place that make the cities of Tokyo, New York, London, Paris and Amsterdam top global destinations. Each rug brings the atmosphere of an old map, faintly charting the flow of rivers and urbanisation in beautiful colour-rich patterns.

The Ecorugs 2024 collection from Louis De Poortere brings projects a 100% recyclable rug and the system to ensure that it finds its way to a product that’s truly circular. Every Cities design is made with 100% recyclable polyester, including backings and the label, so it can be recycled without separation through the Take Care Program at the end of its useful life.

Take Care uses a QR code on the label to set up a collection and return journey that sees unwanted rugs returned directly to Louis De Poortere, rather than enter recycling schemes where the products might well be downcycled like energy recovery. On arrival, Louis De Poortere will assess each rug for condition and either select reuse through second-hand sale, or recycling into raw material for a new Ecorug.

The Cities collection uses a flatweave construction and is finished by hand at the Louis De Poortere mill in Belgium. Available in a range of standard sizes, including circular, all rugs are made with 20% recycled polyester and feature an anti-slip backing. Louis De Poortere aims to produce Ecorugs made from 100% recycled polyester, when the collection will be a circular product. Until then, it will gradually increase the amount of recycled polyester material used.
