We are committed to using all natural, sustainable and renewable fibers, such as sisal, seagrass, jute, paper and wool. All of our sisal weaves in our Premium and Everyday Collections use natural latex backing. We are mindful of the environmental impacts of our raw materials and manufacturing processes, and we do our best to minimize these impacts.
Coir fibers make up about one-third of the pulp found inside the coconut husk. The other two-thirds of the pulp, commonly referred to as coir pith, is a waste material that is used in combination with other organic materials as compost in agricultural fields.
Jute fiber is considered an eco-friendly material that is 100% bio-degradable and recyclable. Our jute yarns are not dyed.
Paper fibers that are used to weave our paper floor coverings are sourced from sustainable, managed forests.
Sisal & Seagrass is a sustainable and renewable source for woven floor covering material. No pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used in sisal production, and most weeding is done by hand rather than through the use of herbicides.
Wool is a renewable, biodegradable fiber that has natural insulating properties to help retain heat and increase cooling effectiveness. The wool industry prides itself on its environmentally responsible production methods: no internationally banned pesticides are used, and the scouring process employed to clean the wool is extremely energy efficient.
