Iris Woven Floor Rug
BEAUTIFUL HANDWOVEN RUG
Placed at the entrance to your home; this simplistic handmade mat instantly lifts your spirits as you come and go. The intricately woven strips of seagrass transport a natural element to your home while its colorful circular design is sure to brighten even the gloomiest day. As practical as it is beautiful, the durable material is water and dirt resistant, making it easy to clean and dry.
The beauty of the woven mat is not only in its looks but also in its origin. Each mat tells a story of slow life due to its slow making process. Brought to you all the way from the Philippines, where artisans of the cottage industry come together to weave, each piece sustains livelihoods and preserves culturally significant crafts.

JENNIFER SHUM ABELEV
JENNIFER SHUM ABELEV is the Los Angeles-based social entrepreneur behind NEEPA HUT. Her desire to make a positive impact was sparked by spending time with artisan communities in Southeast Asia. Seeing the women practice their respective crafts, she was struck by their ingenuity and perseverance, despite their humble surroundings.
Motherhood, for her, took on a new significance after spending time with these women. Consequently, she traded her career in finance for a new challenge, focused on preserving the heritage of Southeast Asia artisans through NEEPA HUT.
The crafts of our artisans shape the social fabric of their villages, and help them provide for their children and families. It is their sense of community and togetherness that Jennifer hopes to extend through NEEPA HUT’s products.
