We are so proud to be associated with some globally renowned people and organisations. Here are examples of just a few.
Our Quirky collection of patterned carpets and patterned narrow width runners are both made in Britain from British Wool.
They have been certified by British Wool and we are proud to support and promote British farmers, the British wool industry and of course, British sheep. We have also sponsored student design competitions with British Wool; nurturing up and coming design talent, while raising awareness of the benefits of British wool.
Ultimately, we care about treading lightly and we are striving to become a climate positive workforce.
Through our pledge with Ecologi we are involved in very worthwhile, well managed projects which help the planet. Some of these projects are in countries where some of our plant fibre materials are sourced. We are therefore actively giving back to these countries. However, we don't just support these projects by off-setting carbon emissions per Alternative employee, we also plant a tree in our burgeoning Alternative Forest for every online sample order we receive.
With their ethos being Make a difference, Choose Wool, how could we not support The Campaign for Wool?
Every year we are keen to participate in Wool Week, celebrating all things wool. We have also worked alongside The Campaign for Wool, sponsoring student competitions to design and create stunning carpets from wool fibre; not only nurturing up and coming design talent, but also promoting the wonders of wool to the next generation.
We are proud to be an industry partner with the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID).
