Beweave It!

Weaving begins as a gift to the future. Inunoo Inuit Carpets is a licensed importer of GoodWeave-certified rugs. While consulting in the Arctic for the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative, textile designer and owner Doug Mantegna met legendary artist Kenojuak Ashevak. Now he has translated some of her famous “Shaman” print series and works by other Inuit artists into limited edition signed rugs, woven by Thailand and Nepalese weavers out of New Zealand and handspun wool and silk. Mantegna explains that in the language of Canada’s northern Inuit, inunoo means “of the people” and each rug design, created by a contemporary Inuit artist, speaks of Inuit cultural values. He says, “Those values — concern and care for the earth — fall right in line with everything GoodWeave supports

Bamboo Carpet

In its natural and timber states, it has a tensile strength comparable to steel. Bamboo fibers can withstand a great deal of pressure and traction without showing signs of wear and tear. Bamboo is a great material to use for large area rugs, small kitchen and bathroom rugs, and even in runners for hallways.

It is naturally resistant to fungi and bacteria, making it among the best choices for eco-friendly lifestyles. Easy to Clean - Simply wipe away any spills right away.
