The Process - Handtufted

Handtufted Rugs

Our Handtufted Rugs are made on a loom, with a skilled weaver punching strands of wool or cotton into an organic cotton canvas. Once the "tufting" is complete, a secondary backing of organic cotton is affixed to the rug, with a GOTS approved non toxic glue.

Handtufted rugs are available in 100% organic cotton or 100% organic wool.

 

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
