Jarapa have been sourcing and distributing recycled & natural products for over 15 years. The founder, Stewart, saw some unusual rugs in a local shop in Spain whilst on holiday. He made a deal with the vendor and bought Jarapa rugs back to sell at markets and shows, and over time added pottery, baskets, rugs and furniture from the Iberian Peninsula. With customers at the markets asking about trade pricing Jarapa started to supply direct to the trade and now supplies customers all over the UK and Europe.
Now our business is almost entirely wholesale and we have focussed our business on recycled, upcycled and natural products.
Our original products, the rugs, are made by a Spanish family who have been making them for 3 generations. We have developed a range of colours and styles over the years that sell well in the UK market. 100% recycled material (made from the offcuts of the upholstery industry), machine washable, reversible and hard wearing they complement any room.
Recycled glassware was an obvious choice of product to increase our range and we have sourced from a number of factories in Spain since 2006. We are able to supply branded glassware and coloured glassware in over 20 colours; with the suppliers we now work with we have an extensive knowledge and catalogue of products many of which we hold in stock in the UK, and more that we can access through our suppliers’ broad ranges. Jarapa have also supplied many businesses, bars, restaurants, hotels etc with unique branded tableware tumblers and wine glasses. If you are looking for something different to use in your business look no further.
The upcycled record clocks launched in 2014 have been a great success. With new designs introduced twice a year we work closely with suppliers to keep the range interesting and fresh. We are able to produce bespoke designs on the vinyl’s we supply and even on your own vinyl’s (MOQ apply).
2015 saw the introduction of lighting from Portugal with our supplier manufacturing a huge range with many hand-made items in glass, cork, brass etc.
