Weaving a better future for handmade rugs and the people who make themRug weaving in India has a rich history, and nurturing this unique craftsmanship starts with the skilled men and women who make IKEA rugs. Together with our suppliers, we have consolidated weaving into centers with good working conditions, fair wages, stable work and care for the environment. It’s a more sustainable way of producing handmade rugs — one that ensures the well-being of the weavers and their communities, the resources we use and our business.
What is wool?Wool is a practical natural material that usually comes from sheep. The raw wool is washed and then spun into yarn. Wool rugs have many advantages. They're soft, warm and comfortable to walk on, and they're also very hardwearing. They're stain-resistant too, because wool has it own natural oil. This means that dirt stays on the surface and doesn't penetrate into the rug. All wool rugs shed - some more, some less - vacuum them regularly to prevent the loose fibers from scattering.
