The Process- Flatweave


 

Flatweave Weaving

Flatweave rugs are made by hand without a “pile.”

Flatweave rugs are woven on a horizontal or a vertical loom by threading cotton, wool, or silk through the warp.

All of our rugs are GOTS certified organic - made from natural materials with no harmful chemicals, and certified free of illegal Child Labor by GoodWeave.

Flatweave rugs are available in 100% organic cotton, 100% organic wool or a combination of 100% organic wool + 100% organic cotton.

 

What is an ORGANIC RUG?

(Every rug we make is certified organic by GOTS)

 

Organic Weave is the only rug company in the world holding the coveted GOTS label. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the most comprehensive, internationally recognized standard in the textile industry today.

Our entire process is monitored – from the first cultivation of our fibers, to the final dyeing and washing stages of our process. Only non toxic materials are allowed by GOTS. Our certification is a promise that we:

  • Source raw materials from traceable, certified organic producers
  • Clean or scour raw materials using biodegradable cleansing agents
  • Use water in a sustainable way throughout processing
  • Use no synthetic agents or oils in our spinning process
  • Dye our yarn using Global Organic Textile Standard approved dye stuffs
  • Finish our rugs with no harmful chemicals or detergents
