Sustainability

We walk the extra mile to challenge existing production methods to create rugs without compromising on design or details. Most of our production is made from up-cycled materials. To some, these materials do not have much value and are often combusted.

Production

We have acquired the Global Recycled Standard certificate, the worlds leading certification standard for recycled textiles including both ecological and social criteria. This means that our production is continuously controlled by an external partner to ensure good conditions for both people and the environment from start to finish.

Global Recycled standard

The main goal of GRS is to increase use of Recycled materials in products and reduce the harm caused by production.

GRS certified products must contain at least 20% recycled material but we always strive to use as much recycled material as possible. Our leather and cotton rugs eg. contain 100% recycled material.

The certificate also ensures good working conditions, in terms of wage, working hours, health and safety and ensures that no child labour is used.

Transportation

With every delivery carried out by UPS and PostNord we donate a small fee towards sustainable climate projects being realised by UPS’ Carbon Neutral Shipment program and PostNord Post med omtanke. You also have the option to have your package shipped in reusable packaging from RePack.

UPS Carbon Neutral Shipment

When choosing UPS you counterbalance the impact of your delivery through carbon offsetting and help fund environmental projects around the world that reduce carbon emissions like the sustainable conservation of the Garcia River Forest.

RePack - Reusable Packaging

The reusable packaging is made from recycled materials and protects the rugs better than any other single-use packaging. Packaging is adjustable and does not ship any air, saving money and nature. All reusable packages are designed to fold into letter size when empty and are simply returned to a postbox, anywhere in the world, free of charge.

Miscellaneous

We know you cannot do it all at once, but you can start small. In everything we make, we consider the environment. Our warehouse uses light dimmers that activate only whenever there is activity and turn completely off when the daylight is sufficient, ensuring maximum use of light and minimum electricity waste. We also print everything on recycled paper and our website is CO2 neutral. Every step counts.

CO2 Neutral Website

Through the CO2 neutral webside initiative CO2 is neutralised corresponding to the emission from our website. Emission from both our servers and your computer is covered.
