Our rugs are sourced from small cottage industry weaving workshops, not factories. Rugs are woven in weavers’ homes. Weavers are paid a fair living wage. We cherish the artisans who create these extraordinary rugs. The weaving of these rugs sustain indigenous traditions and keeps families together.
Hand made rugs are one of the most sustainable products ever made. They can last for generations. When you buy a good hand made rug, you are buying a rug for a lifetime.
Our rugs are naturally washed with soap and water. Softer colors are made by using lesser amounts of the natural dyes instead of by bleaching bright synthetic colors. We avoid selling rugs that have been distressed with chemical treatments and “antique” washes.
