Clive Rogers Oriental Rugs | Stroud | London | Ethics and natural, sustainable materials mat

Sustainability & Ethics

Ethical Working Practices & Responsibility:
Turkey: Following on from the Dobag Project (1980s UNESCO funded endeavour to reintroduce natural dyes and hand spinning), we are helping to maintain cultural heritage by supporting production and rewarding skilled weavers to the best of our ability.
Afghanistan: Working with Turquoise Mountain, a charitable foundation that revives traditional crafts, skills and jobs.

Natural, Sustainable Materials:
Our custom rugs are produced using blends of high-altitude wool , which is hand-spun to produce a high lustre yarn. Native plants and mineral mordents are then used for dyeing.
