Balance Mat

$65.00

The Balance mat is a beautiful, timeless and handmade mat - plus so much more. 

At CARE BY ME it is our desire to help communities in Nepal and India to a better life, so when we were asked if we would support this social project in the small village close to our partner in India, we obviously had to say yes. 

As soon as we saw the products, we decided to expand our support by not just donating our Organic Cotton for their local weaving project, but collaborating to do our own designs and include this amazing product in our full year collection. This way, rather than just a one-time donation, we are actually creating long-term support that we hope will last for years. 

We love the idea of combining these two natural materials - local banana leaves harvested by hand and our GOTS certified Organic Cotton waste material from our Cotton clothing and home goods production.  Woven by hand into these wonderful Balance rugs and mats. 

Each one is woven on a handloom by a local weaver. We are amazed to see what hands can create and we truly cherish their craftsmanship and valued commitment.

The soft, yet tough, mat measures 50x70cm or 20x28in, making it perfect for the floor of your hallway, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom or your cozy cottage. 

Banana Leaves and GOTS certified Organic Cotton from our own production waste

Please note:

Since the product is entirely handmade; no two are alike, hence there can be slight variation in colors and sizes.

Cashmere is an amazing natural material that is extremely addictive when you have brought your first piece into your home.

Please do use your cashmere regularly but remember to treat it well, so that it lasts a long time – and looks new for longer!

How to wash your cashmere:

We recommend that you avoid washing your cashmere product too often. Cashmere is self-cleaning, and smells disappear quickly from the material. Try airing it outside or on a hanger in the bathroom while showering and let the steam clean it.

Machine washing: 

We recommend that you wash your cashmere product in a front-load type of washing machine, either on a wool or hand-washing cycle with water temperature set to 86oF (and max 400 centrifuge), however do not use large industrial machines.

Always use detergent specifically for wool and never fabric softener.  We recommend our Soap Nuts as a natural alternative to detergent and softener.  Please see them listed in our Care Products.

Dry cashmere lying flat, preferably on a towel in the shade (no direct sunlight) and never in the dryer. Avoid stretching the material.

Hand washing:

It is possible to hand wash cashmere, but as it is common to rub or wring an item while doing so, we dissuade this. You risk wringing it out of shape or destroying the fibers.

If hand washing is a necessity, wash one item at a time in lukewarm water and with liquid detergent made for wool or using our Soap Nuts.  Let the small bag of 4-5 Soap Nuts soak in the water before swishing to spread the saponin in the water, and then proceed with washing your CBM product. Lift the product carefully in and out of the water. Do NOT wring or rub the material. Gently press the water out using the palm, lay flat on a towel and gently roll it up to remove excess moisture. Then remove from wet towel and lay it out on a flat surface to dry, preferably on a fresh towel and in the shade.

Remember to never stretch the product.

Stain removal:

Cashmere is naturally stain resistant, however, should you ever have a stain, wash the item as advised above. Avoid rubbing the stain! Blot only. If it is not possible to remove the stain by machine, or hand washing the item, then contact a professional dry cleaner. 

Pilling:

Even the best quality cashmere will produce pilling (peeling), especially under the arms or other places where the material rubs against itself. We recommend that you do not use electrical appliances or shave the cashmere, since you risk cutting threats or fibers, creating more pilling or even holes. Instead, use our cashmere comb, which gently removes surface nubs/pilling. Place your cashmere product on a flat surface and ”comb” it, in the needed areas. As an alternative you can gently remove it with your fingers.

Storing of cashmere products:

Avoid using hangers for your cashmere items. You might find that they lose their shape, especially items which are heavier. Fold the products and put them in a drawer or on a shelf. Since cashmere is a natural material it can attract pests such as moths. If long time storage is needed, we recommend that you pack the items in airtight bags. An old remedy for deterring moths and other insects, is to use aromatic cedar or dried lavender in your drawers and closets – and it smells lovely!
