why is it more sustainable?
Choco is a rug made with leather offcuts.
Every process using leather also generates offcuts that – in current practice – are often burnt. Rug Solid repurposes this leftover material by making rugs.
Rug Solid is GRS–Global Recycled Standard certified, meaning that the recycled content in products is verified and tracked from the source to the final product. Products are made in limited quantities to avoid dead stock and put back into production only if there’s actual demand for them.
Carbon emissions from shipping are compensated by planting trees. Also, the company has joined the 1% For The Planet pledge and invests 1% of its total turnover in projects that preserve and restore nature.
