Our global and social commitment

Each time you look at your rug, you'll know you made a difference.


Together, we're making an impact. You can see right away that our rug collection is absolutely exceptional and a true work of art. But did you know that by choosing to purchase with Little River, you're helping to change the lives of the people who made it? We are proud of a lot of things here, but are most proud of the work done when a rug is purchased with us.


Our rugs are fairly-traded on the front end, but we also work with non-profit organizations in carpet-weaving communities worldwide. They are funded by rug sales, both wholesale and retail, and benefit our refugee weavers, their families and their communities. {We partner with many refugee weavers: Afghans, now located in the Lahore area of Pakistan, and Tibetans now in Nepal.}

 

From building schools and medical facilities, to supplying textbooks and clean water systems, they also support economic development and women empowerment, among many other missions.

Each time you look at your rug, you'll know you made a difference.


On behalf of our weavers, and from Little River, we thank you!

 

You can learn more about these wonderful organizations: 'Barakat', at www.barakatworld.org and 'The Machick Tibetan Weaving Project', at www.machik.org.


Little River Oriental Rugs is proud to support Sustainable Style through our selection of rugs that use hand-carded and hand-spun native wools, that are dyed with native vegetal matter, and are river washed and sun dried.

 

Wool is rapidly renewable and biodegradable, and our 100% wool yarns product a high-quality and eco-friendly area rug. Our use of plant-based dyes, also renewable, is a testament to the most traditional method of coloring fiber.

 

No matter what color rug you select at Little River, it will be "green".

 

We offer EcoNetâ„¢, the only sustainable rug pad, which is made of natural rubber and jute. {They also plant a tree for every pad sold.}

We also offer a thicker needle punch felt pad {Magic Pad} which is made from recycled textile products and provides a little more cushion underfoot. This felt pad is suitable for wall-to-wall carpeting as well as hard surface flooring.

 

Rug pads serve many functions: they hold rugs safely in place, they protect your rug and your floor, and they help to prevent premature wear.

 

Our full immersion hand-wash cleaning is also environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

 

We see a lot of old rugs come in for servicing - and it is such a delight to see how well a good, quality piece holds up to the wear and tear of everyday use. By maintaining and repairing these older rugs, you can help to ensure that these works of art are enjoyed for many generations - these can certainly be heirloom pieces! (Think of how many poor quality rugs one house could go through in a lifetime if they needed to be replaced every few years! It's no wonder over FOUR BILLION pounds of carpet are discarded in the US every year, most of that going into landfills.)
