Children’s playmats. Likely something you’re not excited about bringing into the home. Often garishly bright, interesting smelling and made from questionable materials, the classic foam playmat might not be a thrilling prospect (especially for your living room!) but babes spend so much time on hard floors… Enter Tribe West – finally, a playmat to love! Made from natural materials, these mats are designed to give you and your children all the functionality and comfort you need, in a stylish package that fits with your décor.
Choose between a series of patterns, colours, sizes and finishes. Each mat has a cushioned base of 100% natural rubber and is topped with either cork or wipe-clean polyester, making it perfect for use inside and out.
The beautiful designs are inspired by traditional textiles from around the globe. Tribe West work with artisan cooperatives in the developing world to create unique designs inspired by local and traditional crafts. In this way the brand also gives back - their artisan partners earn a percentage of the sales of their designs, and additionally a percentage of Tribe West proceeds goes toward supporting artisans, women and children in traditional and marginalized communities.
California-based Tribe West is the creation of parents Michelle and Gabriel, born out of the search for a floor solution for their family that was durable, eco-friendly, and would blend in with our décor rather than sticking out like a sore thumb. When they found nothing of the sort, their vision for a practical solution and a force for good developed.
Tribe West aims to offer products that are safe for your family, beautiful for your home, eco-friendly and socially conscious too. Bravo! They currently ship within the US only.
“Such a clever idea - and a great execution too!”
