Rug tackling the issue of Global Warming

I was looking around the website when i came across this extraordinary rug, in which Mexican design collective NEL have designed for Spanish textile brand Nanimarquina.
Nanimarquina find that Global Warming today is being overshadowed by politicised discussions. It has been pushed off the front page of newspapers and people are starting to forget about climate change.

The rug has been made to show contrast. The rug is soft and comfortable compared to the topic of climate change which is a tough battle to concur (especially when people are forgetting all about it).

The rug features a felt polar bear on a small iceberg in a large sea of carpet, especially designed to show how tiny in comparison iceberg habitats are to the ocean.
