ELECTRIC & ELECTRIFYING. BMW i.

BMW i is a ground-breaking concept for sustainable mobility. It represents visionary electric vehicles, inspiring design and an understanding of premium that is defined by sustainability. It thrills with its innovative vehicles: the all-electric BMW i3, an emission-free vehicle for city driving, and the BMW i8 as the future of the sports vehicle.

Sustainability characterises BMW. This is why we are the Dow Jones Sustainability Index leader for the eighth year in succession, making BMW the most sustainable company in the automotive industry.

Natural, renewable, sustainable: the interiors of BMW i cars feature door trim panels and dashboards made from a renewable natural fibre, naturally-tanned leather and an open-pore eucalyptus wood from 100% FSC®-certified forestry. Overall, 25% renewable raw materials and recycled plastics were used in the interior of the BMW i3. The textile seat coverings are 100% recycled polyester, produced using 34% PET. A further 25% recycled plastics are used in the exterior. Plus 95% of the materials used to produce a BMW i3 can be recycled, because sustainability is an attitude that doesn't have a beginning or an end.

Established in 1996, Auswest Timbers Pty Ltd started with the acquisition of a single hardwood sawmill in the beautiful Western Australian town of Busselton. This breathtaking area in the south west of the state is home to the Southern Hemispheres longest timber jetty. Built over 140 years ago and still holding strong, we feel this is a sure sign of quality timber and craftsmanship!

Manufacturing a diverse range of timber products from large, heavy structural sections, floor joists, roofing timbers and roof tile battens to value added kiln dried and dressed products such as floorboards, decking and some of the most beautiful furniture timbers you will ever find, we believe that we have the right timber for your needs, whatever they may be. Strong, hardwearing and incredibly beautiful.

In Western Australia, the Jarrah and Karri forests are sustainably managed by the State Government agency, the Forest Products Commission, to ensure all Eucalypt hardwood forests are conserved for many years to come. The Forest Products Commission has implemented an environmental management system that has been certified as complying with the requirements of the international standard AS/NZS ISO 14001 and in January 2009, achieved certification to the AFS. The Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) is the leading management standard of the Australian Forestry Certification Scheme (AFCS) which certifies extensive areas of native forests and plantations across Australia.

It’s amazing that six years at The Rug Collection have passed already, and what started out as a small business has grown rapidly into an international company. A lot has evolved over the years, but our true passion remains in creating unique designs, and offering the market place a variety of rugs that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Our exclusive rugs are all designed in Australia, and handmade by artisans in India. We regularly visit our production houses, working closely with the experienced crafters who have been dying yarns and expertly weaving handmade rugs for generations. All our products are of the highest quality, embrace fair trade practices, and are handmade in New Zealand wool, wool blend and artsilk.

The Transterior range are made from 100% recycled PET and were designed by Jamie Durie for both indoor & outdoor use.
