GROUNDED, a simple philosophy for a new era of contemporary living.
100% pure natural rugs made of jute, cotton, silk and wool, designed in Australia and handmade in India.
Home is where the heart is and a heart-felt space is all about a connection - a feeling of being close to your loved ones and the natural elements all around us that evoke a sense of contentment, joy and harmony.
Twice a year, our Founder, Melinda Aldridge travels to the far East to bring her designs inspired by Australian landscapes, from the red dust of Weipa to the violent greys of the Bass Strait waters, to the artisanal weavers in the majestic land of India, where craftsmen and craftswomen create with pure intent and skills that have been acquired through generations of weaving. The result is the beauty of nature and ancient craftsmanship encapsulated in modernity. Melinda believes in good design and functional living that enhances our human connections. Her personal values lay in respecting nature, honouring each space and treasuring the transformative power of colour.
In addition to our Founder's trips we are also very humbled to have as part of the Grounded team a Development and Quality Control Manager based in India who divides his time across Bhadohi and Jaipur for Grounded ensuring all our productions are of the highest quality and design. This ongoing appointment also continues our direct support for the Indian rug making community and fair trade.
For a most exquisitely personalised style, please contact Mel for a custom rug consultation. She will design a bespoke piece for your home from your very own style references and size requirement.
