Environmental and Sustainability Policy
Antiques by their very nature as previously owned items have a negative carbon footprint. In addition, carpets, rugs, tapestries and textiles are made from natural materials such as wool, cotton and silk which have no environmental impact and are naturally sustainable and recyclable.
When conserving, repairing and cleaning antique rugs, carpets, textiles and tapestries, we strive to be environmentally friendly by using vegetable dyes, pure soap and deionised water. We use recyclable underlays and, where possible, recycled wool for restoration. Vintage carpets, rugs, tapestries and textiles by reason of their age have no effect on the environment.
