Why is it sustainable?
Fordite is a sustainable rug made with fine recycled yarn coming from cc-tapis’ production offcuts.
This rug is a mix of Himalayan wool, pure silk and aloe (a strong yarn obtained from the fibre of a nettle plant).
All cc-tapis rugs are entirely hand-made. From washing and dying to knotting and finishing, everything is done by hand thanks to skilled artisans in Nepal. On another note, final washing is done reusing collected rainwater.
To further support weavers’ families in Nepal, cc-tapis has founded CC-FOR-EDUCATION, a non-profit organization that provides weavers’ children with education in private schools – from kindergarten to high-school graduation.
