Hand-woven rugs are beautiful, but rug weaving has often been linked to poor working conditions and exploitation. We wanted to find a way to work with producers to maintain the quality and feel of a handmade rug, while radically improving working conditions. And we did.
See how IKEA, together with our suppliers, is improving the way hand-made rugs are produced in India and Bangladesh, ensuring good quality, more care for the environment and decent working conditions.
Producing hand-made rugs with decent working conditions and fair pay has proved to be a win-win situation. For weavers it’s meant that orders, work and income are steady and predictable. We’ve cut out middlemen and replaced them with weaving centres that fulfil the IKEA code of conduct and safety conditions.
Our ambition is to place weaving centres close to where weavers and other workers live, so they don’t have to move away from their home and family to find a job.
We’ve also made changes to the weaving process, developing a new loom that requires less physical strength to operate. This means that weaving can now be a profession for women, providing them with work and economic stability. We also decided not to patent the new loom so it can be available to everyone.
