We feel that a lot of the Green issues are mostly political hype with a lot of froth & bubble !

However, if being environmentally friendly is the part that you choose, you will find that most of our Natural Floorcoverings are very environmentally friendly.

We believe that, “what ever can be recycled will be eventually”.

Instead of disposing of the clean off cut waste material from our projects, we recycle it to make the sampling.

Whenever the need arises to use adhesives, we do our best to use Eco friendly adhesives that have extremely low TVOC (total volatile organic compounds) and give out low odour. We even go to the point of re using the cardboard and plastic tubing that the new rolls of carpet are rolled on as well as the plastic wrapping that these rolls and bales of carpet are covered in.

Our entire range of woven natural fiber carpets are environmentally friendly, including Wool, Sisal, Jute, Seagrass and Coir are made from renewable or plentiful resources, are low in embodied energy and pollution impacts, also the dyes used are acid free and conform with all European standards.

Our Seagrass is not taken from the ocean as some may think, but sustainable cultivated & harvested from paddy like fields.

No pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used in sisal production, and although herbicides are occasionally used, even this impact may be eliminated, since most weeding is done by hand.

Allergy problems are lessened because both Coir and Sisal contain Tannins which repel dust mites.

The natural fibers also absorb moisture from the air when it's humid and release it when the humidity drops, which helps stabilise the indoor surroundings for sensitive noses.

When looking at floorcoverings for your project, choose products with very low or no solvent and harmful particle emissions, such as Coir and Sisal that are non-toxic, Anti-static and Antibacterial. These environmentally friendly characteristics have always made our natural fiber carpets increasingly popular with the Australian consumer.
