Tappeti’s products and services have a low environmental impact and enhance the communities in which we operate.
All our products are handmade and are predominantly made from natural fibres including wool, hemp and cactus yarn. Handmade processes and simple tools are used from dyeing the yarn, transferring and tufting or knotting the design, to binding, carving and finishing.
We do not use industrial machines at all in any of our manufacturing processes. These processes allow for families to work together to maintain techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Child labour and exploitation is against our business philosophy and is therefore not present in any of our manufacturing processes. We support a variety of programs that prevent child labour and provide educational support for the weaver’s children.
