If you love wool, we think you’ll love Nature’s Carpet. First, the carpet styles are beautiful. Second, the company itself believes strongly in ethical, sustainable, and renewable soft surfaces for your home.
Why Wool Carpet?
Since ancient times wool has been used as a friendly decorative floor covering. The wool yarn was spun and hand-knotted into rugs often with intricate artistic patterns. Wool’s warmth and beauty add softness to homes, muffling sound and, protecting hard floors. Today, wool is a highly sought-after natural fiber and is an excellent option for your home given its many incredible benefits:
- Durable and long-lasting
- Soft and comfortable
- Excellent sound absorption and insulation
- Filters allergens and dust
- Low toxicity
- A rapidly renewable resource from sheep
- Compliant with international certifications such as LEED in North America

The Green Spectrum for Nature’s Carpet Collection
Nature’s Carpet feels so strongly about the notions of ethical, sustainable, and renewable that it has developed a Green Spectrum to better identify the different levels of eco-friendliness in its carpet products. It consists of Dark, Medium, and Light Green categories as follows:
Dark Green Wool Carpet Products
Dark Green products are the most natural and environmentally friendly because they are made from 100% undyed and chemical-free wool pile. That means that they include no chemical additives or insecticides at any stage. Carpet backings consist of natural jute; adhesives are made from natural latex. That makes the carpet biodegradable with low-VOC emissions (certified).
Medium Green Wool Carpet Products
Medium Green products consist of 100% wool pile on a natural jute backing, using undyed or stable low VOC dyes and synthetic backing adhesive. The carpet is insect resistant with low-VOC emissions (certified).
