Sustainable Wool Rugs from Emma Gardner


We've seen carpets and rugs made with all kinds of different materials; from recycled bicycle inner tubes to soy to bamboo to selvedge, it doesn't seem like there's much that rugs can't be made from these days. Sometimes, though, you can't beat good old-fashioned wool, like these new designs from Emma Gardner. As member of The RUGMARK Foundation, Emma Gardner rugs are certified to have been made under strict labor guidelines, including no illegal child labor; a portion of the carpet price is also contributed to the rehabilitation and education of former child weavers. Gardner's previous designs have appeared in Elle, Vogue and In Style magazine; these new designs are hand-tufted from 100% sustainable New Zealand wool, and are available from ::Emma Gardner Design via ::2modern Design Talk
