Materials: Ethically sourced natural agave fiber, know as “Fique” fiber.
Ethically handmade and sourced in Colombia.
Water Usage: The rugs are made from Colombian agave fiber called “Fique”. Fique is known to have roots that help in soil protection and underground water storage. The water used to wash fique fibers as part of the production processes is then re-used to irrigate the crops in the land where they are grown. No water is contaminated in the process.
Circularity Centered: Once the agave is cut and depulped, the organic material that is residue from the depulping is used as fertilizer for other close-by productions (fruits, beans, potatoes).
Cruelty Free: No products involve animals or animal subproducts in any part of the process.
Vegan: No products involve animals or animal subproducts in any part of the process.
Friendly Materials: When extracted the Fique is extracted only from the outer leaves, so that the plant can continue to grow. The agave fiber used, the copper and tin threads are biodegradable. The powdered dyes used to color the products are environmentally friendly and sourced in Switzerland.
Locally Crafted: The Fique production in Colombia sustains an estimated of 60,000 families that depend economically on its cultivation and transformation. 10,000 more of these families are artisans, part of which work with Tapistelar to create these beautiful rugs.
Considerately Produced: Most of the production chain is manual, from cutting, depulping, dying, spunning, weaving, and stitching. Minimal technology is used and the only CO2 emissions produced come from shipping. Packaging: As our products travel overseas, they do require plastic wrappings for protection. The rugs are also protected in fique agave fiber bags. The protected rugs are placed in their boxes (made from the same material of the rugs, these are used to export coffee around the world).
