These rugs by Angela Adams, are almost sustainably created. They are backed with 100% cotton monk cloth and a latex adhesive. This bodes well for your home, since it's non-toxic and natural. In addition, Angela Adams is a member of Rugmark, a global organization working to end child labor and offer educational opportunities. The problem is that the cotton is conventionally grown as far as we know, which means a whole lot of pesticides and water were used to create it. Available from 2Modern for $70 each.
