A Note on Sustainability

We are constantly searching the industry for innovative green products and make every effort to reduce our resource and energy consumption. Bradford’s is committed to supporting sustainable products and environmentally conscious companies. Research and experience has taught us that rugs crafted completely by hand can be the most environmentally friendly, both for the earth and its people. Hand crafted rugs are created most often in 100% virgin wool, hand spun and hand carded by individuals in the rug producing region. Purchasing a hand crafted rug is an investment for generations to enjoy and is at least one commodity in our lives that should never end up in a landfill.
