At Carpetworks, we use recycled and recyclable materials that come from old fishing nets retrieved from the sea, textile, and carpet residues in the creation of your luxury hand-tufted carpets. The use of these materials is symbolised by "The Blue Thread" which represents the eco-conscious thread that unites us all in our journey towards sustainability.
Along the way, we realised that sustainability goes beyond materials, it means much more, it means having a long-term purpose when it comes to the way we are, act, and interact internally and externally. We call it ‘Purpose Driven Sustainability,’ which has three main pillars:
1- People purpose sustainability: We care about the people inside and outside our company. We care about their self-connection, self-growth, and well-being. We believe in the power of collaboration and co-creation as a way to inspire others to do the same so that we can drive toward sustainability in humanity. We believe in the philosophy of “Ubuntu. I am because we are.”
2- Processes and Products purpose sustainability: We let our actions speak for us to be more sustainable. We believe that the kind, ethical, and professional way we conduct our processes and create our products, will lead us to have a long-lasting profitable company.
3- Planet purpose sustainability: With our innate respect, appreciation, and gratitude towards nature, we are striving to create and produce beautiful carpets using more sustainable materials to remain conscious of the impact this has on the planet.
As John Lennon said in the song ‘Imagine’, “You may say I am a dreamer, but I am not the only one,” and in the realm of sustainability, we are dreamers of a better planet, and we know there are architects, designers, shipyards, companies, institutions, and artists that we co-create with who have the same dream. This is the ‘ECO D.R.E.A.M’ that we strive to make true on a daily basis.
Co-creation with passionate like-minded people is crucial to us not only to materialize great projects but also to expand the awareness and impact on sustainability.
What would it take to allow us to work together in this creative process to co-create stunning luxury carpets and make a difference in the world at the same time?
