Our mission is to create beautiful rugs in the most earth-friendly ways possible. We don't use any dyes, yet we offer a range of colors. We don't use chemicals of any kind. We never use latex, which off-gasses, and many people find toxic. It also breaks down over time, shortening the lifespan of the rug, which adds bulk to lanfills.

We hand-weave our cotton rugs using new yarns spun from recycled fiber, mostly clothing, that would have otherwise gone to landfills. We sort these textiles by color before harvesting the fiber, so the newly spun yarns are already colored, and we don't have to pollute the earth with the large amount of wastewater that dyes create.

We treat our workers with kindness and respect and pay them above market rates. We sell only direct to decrease mark-up and to make our earth-friendly products affordable to the widest range of people.
