Node at Tent London: Good People, Good Products

It’s rare that someone purchases a rug for their home and has the thought: “I’m saving the world.” Rug company Node is changing that. Truthfully, you’re not exactly saving the world but you’re definitely taking a step in the right direction while giving your home a beautiful new accessory! Node was born out of a desire to marry fair-trade practices with design – they’ve made a business of being good people with good taste. As they state on their website, the founders of Node “aim to connect a worldwide network of designers and artists with traditional Nepalese carpet makers to create beautiful handmade rugs.” How can you resist that mission statement? Node parters with Kumbeshwar, the organization that actually produces their rugs. Kumbeshwar are a founder member of Fair Trade Nepal and their employees “are taught literacy and skills. In addition to fair wages their work supports a school of 260 children and an orphanage of nineteen.”

While there are obviously many karma-related reasons to check out Node, there are definitely some style-relate ones too. Node’s rugs are characterized by bold color, nature motifs, and playful, abstract imagery. These rugs would be perfect for a kid’s room or in any room needing an infusion of fun and brightness. Each rug is made by hand using traditional methods – you can’t buy anything like this from Pottery Barn.
