Our Dying Process

We use natural dyes and Swiss chrome dyes to color our rugs.

Natural dyes derive from plants, vegetables and mineral sources like indigo leaves, madder root, pomegranate peel and henna leaves just to name a few. This dying technique creates unique color characteristics which only enhance the rug design.

Swiss chrome dyes are used when an exact color needs to be matched. They are AZO free dyes that are colorfast and vibrant.

Ethics

Our hand-tufted rugs have met the requirements of the Carpet and Rug Institute's green label plus program for pre-dyed wool with SB latex backing.

Our hand-knotted and flat-woven rugs are made in a Goodweave certified factory. Read more about Lucy's involvement with Goodweave here.
