MANCHESTER, N.H.–Carpet One Floor & Home has released its newest indoor/outdoor mats for its Welcomes Your Support campaign, which donates money for breast cancer research. This season’s exclusive designs include ones from designer Glen Peloso and Julie Edelman, The Accidental Housewife.
All incorporating a pink ribbon, the 10 designs include seasonal looks, as well as plaids and other styles. Twenty-five percent of the sales of the mats will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the U.S. and the Canadian Cancer Society in Canada.
Edelman used butterflies in her design, as they “have always symbolized life’s journey of highs, lows and patience, particularly when unexpected transitions or turmoil come our way and we discover that life’s detours can actually leave us stronger and more beautiful — inside and out,” she said. As houndstooth is prevalent in the fall and winter fashion collection, Peloso used that pattern in his design.
Carpet One Floor & Home’s campaign has been supporting breast cancer research since 2004, and the mats have raised more than $800,000 for the organizations.
