Traditionally made handloom rugs that are made in India for Namaste on a fair trade basis. A high wool content allows vibrancy and depth of colour and also allows greater detail to be incorporated into the design. The highly skilled weavers either use one of the looms in the weaving factory or supplement family income with weaving income earned in their own home on looms provided by the exporter. The pattern and raw materials are provided to the weavers and payment is made on collection. Namaste’s Indian agents visit and audit the production facilities to ensure that working conditions are acceptable and that fair trade guidelines as set by the WFTO are in place. Kilim production is a skilled art which is passed down from generation to generation and the work attracts good rates of pay. The business provides valued employment to almost 400 people in total.
