Rug Manufacturer Introduces Eco-Friendly Line

Locally-Grown Organic Wool & Cotton Fibers are Key Ingredients in Highly-Stylized New Collection

There’s little doubt the world is shrinking. Produce gown in Central America appears in our local supermarkets days after being picked. Every day we depend on customer service centers in India to run our businesses. And this just scratches the surface. As the world becomes a smaller place, the way in which products are manufactured becomes a major concern. Toss in our fears about global warming, and it’s no wonder consumers say that if given the choice they’d prefer to purchase products made with ingredients that have the least negative impact upon the environment.*

With this in mind, Nourison, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of floor covering products, has introduced Taos, a new collection of area rugs. Not only is the Taos collection manufactured with all natural, reusable organic materials, it is created using wool from villages in some of the world’s most remote locations throughout India and China. Spun by local artisans and colored with vegetable rather than chemical dyes, it is an ecologically acceptable approach to creating handcrafted area rugs.

Taos contains three distinct area rugs with designs inspired by art and nature.

They are sold in a range of sizes including 4’ x 6’, 5.6’ x 8’ and 8’ x 10’. Manufacturer suggested prices are $599 (4’ x 6’); $999 (6’ x 8’); $1899 (8’ x 10’).

Nourison is the world’s largest manufacturer of area rugs and a leading producer of premium-quality broadloom carpeting with over 1 million rugs in-stock. From signature handmade collections to prestige designer lines including Liz Claiborne and Calvin Klein, Nourison supplies more than 100 distinctive collections to prominent retailers and design houses throughout the world.
