About

At Canary,  we are obsessed with fighting waste and toxic pollution.  Did you know that 4.7 billion pounds of carpet and rugs end in landfill every year in the US? Mostly it's because they can't be recycled.

Worst of all, the majority of rugs contain substances that are toxic to our health and the environment, and are serious pollutants inside our homes or office spaces.

We thought this is crazy. So we worked hard to create rugs made from non-toxic recycled materials that can be fully recycled back into rugs. No waste, no toxicity.

There's more. The modularity and flexibility features of this rug makes it so that you won't easily get tired of them. You will be able to move them around as your living spaces change. With their easy to wash and dry properties, a stain will no longer be a problem, so you'll be able to enjoy your rugs for longer.

Goodbye to carpet shampoos, toxic cleaning sprays and forever stained carpet. Now stains and smells can be sorted out far more easily. Whether you have kids, pets or you’re simply a red wine enthusiast, a spill will no longer be a problem! Just take the dirty piece and throw it in the washing machine! A cold wash setting and gentle laundry detergent will do the trick. We believe this to be a break with tradition and a huge leap forward in design. 

Did you know you breathe 3000 gallons’ worth of air per day? As we spend 95% of the time indoors on average, most of this air that contains toxic particles from poorly designed furniture objects at home and at work.

The Freedom squares™ are designed entirely using non-toxic materials and processes that won’t pollute the air. Instead, they will help trapping dust, so you will breathe less of it. Nobody should spend their precious time researching safe furniture options, and Canary has done it for you.

Freedom squares™ eliminate the need for stabilizing pads, tape or glue to hold your rug in place. Our pioneering Gecko Strips use micro-adhesion technology adapted from geckos’ toes so that your rug stays where it’s supposed to be – so long as there’s no grease on the floor – without leaving marks or stains. Tested on every kind of hard floor, if your Gecko Strips begin to lose their adhesion properties, a short wash in soapy water will return their strength.

Our luxurious, stylish rugs are available in a variety of colors and configurations to adapt in any interior space. Ease of use and washable parts mean warm comfort for a cold kitchen or dining area floor is now a reality. At home or at work, you Freedom squares™ can be placed and reshaped any time.

Reusable and Recyclable

We love the feeling of the sun on our skin, the wind in our hair and soft carpet between our toes. What we don’t love is toxic stuff, pollution or waste.

That’s why our Freedom squares™ are made from polyester (PET), one of the most recyclable materials on the planet. If you will ever get tired of them, we will take it back and recycle them into into premium, high quality, soft rugs for you to love again and again.

Risks and challenges

After years of research and testing we’ve applied everything we’ve learned about recycling PET plastics into our suite of beautiful, soft, practical rugs. Though there were many challenges along the way, the product we are proud to present today has been streamling to eliminate all risk. We are now seeking patent protection for our innovations.

As an organization with sustainability and vision at its core we want the very best for our customers. Our send-back scheme, which allows customers to return rugs at the end of their lifeline, presents a unique set of challenges – yet it’s a central facet of our offering, one that sees us join customers in envisaging a future where dated and damaged products do not end up in landfill sites but return to the supply chain. It’s a solution we’re determined to achieve.
