Hi, We are Moriya and Techiya. Our backgrounds are in architecture and product design, and through our work we celebrate the relationship between these disciplines.
Our friendship goes many years back and now as mothers, we decided we have to create something together. We sought to create products to enhance childhood moments and impressions through the creation of unique play and living spaces for children. This was the inspiration for our studio, Baloot (which means acorn in Hebrew.)
At Baloot studio we believe that design for children should be simple, natural, warm and full of charm. We design beautiful and unique products that are non-toxic and vegan, without compromising their aesthetic appearance. We are drawn to quality, cleanliness and simplicity that contain beauty and sophistication. Our products combine imagination, art and playfulness and help enhance a warm family atmosphere using natural materials.
While sketching and searching for materials that inspire us we both fell in love with CORK. Its presence is calming, its texture is perfect, it feels smooth, and it looks warm and creates a cozy atmosphere. That's when ROOGA was created: The first natural cork rugs designed for children and home.
Rooga cork rugs combine a natural cork surface with the comforts of natural rubber. The thin cork layer is amazingly flexible and pleasant to touch, and natural soft rubber provides a zero-slip layer to support the rug! The fact that cork is so super eco friendly is of great value to us.
Hope you enjoy our ROOGA RUGS, and we promise there are more products on the way.
We invite you to BRING THE FEEL OF NATURE TO YOUR HOME WITH ROOGA CORK RUGS.
You are most welcome to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have :).
