Why is it sustainable?
Una is a rug made of 80% wool from New Zealand and 20% cotton sourced from BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) crops.
In an industry that has historically been far from sustainable, Chhatwal & Jonsson is creating a fully transparent supply chain introducing an important concept: traceability. All rugs come with a tracking number that allows retracing all steps from wool production in New Zeland to spinning, dyeing, weaving and washing in India.
Chhatwal & Jonsson is carefully addressing both the social and environmental aspects of rug making.
Working conditions are inspected and regulated by an independent auditing agency to ensure good standards are maintained.
To reduce the environmental footprint of wool combing, twisting and dyeing, Chhatwal & Jonsson works with certified partners whose operations are powered with green energy and use re-cycled and purified water.
Made with only natural materials, all rugs are fully recyclable.
As a way of monitoring the impact of its operations, Chhatwal & Jonsson’s products are rated according to an ‘Impact Calculator’ which goes from avoiding harmful activities for people&planet to generating positive and measurable social & environmental impact – which is where traceable rugs belong.
