Why is it sustainable?
Fontenelle is a hand-knotted rug made with 100% New Zealand wool chosen to comply with International Wool Textile Organisation's standards.
Patterns & colours are inspired by natural environments (a coastline in this case). This makes Claire Gaudion’s rugs a good way to introduce natural analogues into a biophilic interior.
Claire Gaudion rugs (created in collaboration with Momo Rugs) are all handmade by skilled artisans and Care & Fair certified.
Care & Fair is an organization that works towards improving weavers’ living conditions. The certification ensures that weavers receive fair wages, live and work in good conditions and that no child labour is used.
In addition, Care & Fair offers free education and primary medical care to weavers’children and gives women a chance to improve their life by learning basic notions (reading, writing, maths…) and practical skills (sewing and embroidery).
