- I have pets and/or children. Do I need to wait to get a wool or felt rug?
You’ll be happy to learn that woolen rugs are highly durable. The knots are woven extremely tight. That is why it is pretty much impossible for pets and children to destroy them.
- Are your Indian rugs made with the use of child labor?
All Sukhi rug makers are adults. They are also Indian artisans who receive a fair wage.
Rug making in India is serious business. Many makers also play a part in raising and sheering sheep. Some handle vegetal dye as well. These skills are passed down from one generation to the next. Yet, children are never involved in the process. They only observe and learn.
- Will my rug fade?
Sukhi artisans use an excellent dying process. The materials are also superb.
Before we make the yarn into a rug, we wash it several times. It is also washed multiple times after the rug is completed. This entire process secures color in the best way possible. That’s why our colors do not run or fade.
