Hand woven carpets

Weaving is the most traditi­onal technique to produce a carpet. To do so, you cross two threads (chaining and weft thread) rectangularly with each other. The spe­cialty of a hand woven car­pet is that you can use it on both sides. From the sheep-shearing right to the fini­shed carpet, the dyeing and the yarning of the wool, followed by the weaving, knotting and tufting – a PAULIG carpet is handmade from beginning to end.
 
Paulig manages the complete production process fro beginning to end. This self-contained value-added chain provides the certainty of achieving the best quality at the highest environ­mental level.

But what is the difference between a handmade carpet compared to mainly machine-made ones? It is the human factor, the flair of harm­ony, liveliness and passion. You can see it, feel it and sense it. Handicraft indeed has soul!

Be friendly to the earth.


- Dalai Lama -

From the beginning, the PAULIG weaving mill has always produced its carpets in such a way, that people and environment have been protected. PAULIG pays strict attention to ensuring that all produced or ordered materials are made without the participation of children in the wor­king process. Our local PAULIG repre­sentatives, who work on site, are able to check this every day. Another important aspect is the consis­tent choice of renewable primary pro­ducts of high quality – wool, jute, cotton, hemp, sisal and silk – which is the best foundation for further processing. This starts with clear water and chemi­cal-free soap. The carpet moth conservation needed is of course odorless and certified as representing no health hazard. Dyeing is also done on the high­est ecological level at PAULIG. Heavymetal-free, strictly controlled quality products from Switzerland help to pro­tect people, air and water. And only what is written on the PAULIG carpet label can be found in the carpet itself. It is indeed the case that the pro­duction of a PAULIG carpet is friendly to the earth, human beings and nature.
the dyeing at PAULIG is performed to the highest environmental standards
