Beautiful rug, super-fast shipping, attentive and friendly seller. It's nice to know that not only you are buying a lovingly made product, but also helping a team of people sustain their crafty community. Highly recommended!
Lude - Design with good karma
What if there was more joy and less waste?
With this thought in mind Lude was created - a trademark for social enterprise that employs senior citizens and utilizes potential textile waste creating design rugs. It gives reason for retired people to get up in the morning and look forward to something, thus also saving a little bit of our green planet.
In an open creative space on old wooden weaving looms Lude employees create stylish and colourful rugs out of textile production leftovers and recycled garments. Every bit of the work process is done by hand, starting from sorting out the raw material, cutting it into strips and then weaving. You can imagine, how much warmth of the hands is put in every rug that comes out of Lude. A true design with good karma.
Lude is located in Riga, Latvia. The weavers range from 50 to even 74 years of age and all of them love what they are doing. Lude is founded by two childhood friends Zane and Solvita, who wanted to give a try to social entrepreneurship and ensure active aging possibilities for elderly people. "Lude was born, because we truly love our moms"!
