The Pappelina ANTS runner has its origin in a pattern that Lina Rickardsson saw in New York one summer. Lina turned it into a harmonic and elegant chain design.
The combination of the pattern, and beautiful shade of pale orange, give ANTS a real mid-century feel.
Woven from soft plastic using traditional Swedish techniques, a Pappelina runner can be used in all areas of the home.
They are reversible, dust and dirt repellent, and fully washable, although a quick vacuum is probably all they will ever need to keep them looking good as new.
Woven to order and on your floor in 21 - 28 days.

Plastic carpets? Yes, the idea is fantastic!
The technique of weaving plastic carpets was born in 1948 in Dalarna, Sweden, and was later modernised by Pappelina as new forms, colours, and materials were added to the original process.
A Pappelina rug begins its life in the mind of Lina Rickardsson. It is she who is Pappelina, she who is the designing force.
When you invest in a rug from Pappelina you invest in quality – quality that lies in true Swedish craftsmanship.
Every rug is finished by hand. Experienced and careful eyes check every centimetre. It’s a true piece of craftsmanship. It’s quality. And it’s Swedish through and through.
Can a plastic rug be sustainable?
Pappelina only uses the highest quality plastic material. A rug from Pappelina is exclusively woven from the purest plastic ribbons made in Sweden. By purchasing Swedish-made raw materials they can meet their high-quality standards and ensure that their rugs do not contain any harmful substances whatsoever. The plastic they use is approved for use in the food industry and to produce toys in both the EU and the US.
