The Beauty and Feel of Clean, Natural Carpet
We've come a long way since those early chemical-ridden carpeting products. At workingwonders, we partner with suppliers of sustainable carpeting products, and with experienced installers of these products. This is important because the last thing you want is someone in your home or office installing environmentally friendly carpeting in an environmentally un-friendly way!
Our carpet tour begins with Eco Finishes, offering wool carpeting at entry level price points. Eco Finishes is a great option for affordable color carpets, uses at least 25% recycled content, and also offers a wide selection of hard flooring options including wood, bamboo, and cork.
Among our favorites, Earth Weave Carpet Mills, located in Georgia, offers the finest in 100% natural wool carpeting, with no dyes, no bleach, and no synthetic materials for the absolute cleanest possible floor covering. Hemp, cotton, and jute form the primary and backing, while natural rubber padding can be added underneath. These carpets are extraordinary—luxurious, yes, but also a perfect option for people who suffer from allergies or chemical sensitivities.
For all-natural exotic fibers with grand color and impact, Classic Rug Collection offers a broad selection ranging from 100% wool, wool and silk blends, hemp, and other materials, with production sourced in the United States and in fair-trade communities throughout the globe. When you want something truly special for your home, with a strong sense of elegance, Classic Rug Collection is a formidable option.
Fair-trade weavers don't get much better than Garuda. These amazing Tibetan carpets and rugs are made from 100% natural wool and silk with vibrant 100% vegetable dyes. The look and feel is incomparable, and as with all of our suppliers, floor coverings can be customized as you like.
