“ Type: Picnic Wares „
My sister and I bought this on a bit of a whim when we were out with my niece and nephew at Harewood House. This is a lovely place to visit with a stately home to look around and a massive kids play area. The kids play area has a couple of benches but they were full and we wanted to have a sit down. The grass was a little bit damp to sit on so my sister took a trip to the gift shop in the hopes of getting a couple of carrier bags to sit on. She came back with this rug and it now lives in the back of my car for those wet grass emergencies.
==Price and availability==
This picnic rug can be bought for £5.99 online, in the shop where we were it was £7.99 so it was overpriced a little bit but gift shops do tend to charge a little more for things.
This is a simple little picnic rug and it is only very small. The dimensions are 70 cm by 100 cm so it can fit one person comfortably or you can sit next to someone with your feet hanging off the edge. Because of the size though, it folds up very small. The big selling point to this is the pvc backing as it means that you can stay dry when the grass is damp. We live in England so lets face it, it rains a lot so there is a high percentage of chance that the grass will be damp from the night rain or dew in the morning. The pvc backing stops the wetness seeping into your clothes and the other side of the rug stays dry.
This is a layer of material that is thick enough to not tear or rip but it is not spongy or anything. The fabric has a traditional tartan pattern in red and blue and it looks fetching and rather sophisticated.
This is so handy to have and as long as you come to terms with the size you will enjoy the rug for what it is. I personally prefer a much larger picnic blanket so I can stand my food on it and sprawl out. If you are looking for something small to travel with and you only need it for sitting on then you will enjoy owning this.
This is great picnic rug that is perfect for packing up small. It is well priced and it is very good quality. The PVC backing is perfect for keeping you dry and keeps the seat of your jeans free from wet patches. It is a small rug but it does not try to be anything other than a handy one person picnic rug.
Ideal for picnics, barbecues, beach etc. Equally useful as a seat cover for pet owners. Rug dimensions: 100cm x 70cm.
