BINDU GOPAL RAO
Natural hardwood floors create a soft and warm feeling of texture inside interior spaces. Likewise, woolen carpets available in varying ranges of thickness, sizes, colours and patterns are a great way to jazz up floors. Experts tell us more.

NEW VISTAS

Brands are constantly creating value for their products based on market demands. These companies are making products that adapt to the concepts of cost effectiveness, ease of installation and longevity. “With the pandemic, it has also become necessary to produce locally and avoid large scale transportation. This further helps in increasing the sustainability value of the products,” says Rutuja Rode, Project Architecture and Executive Director, Meta-Arch. The manufacturing community has been severely impacted in the form of raw material increase, rise in global shipping charges and reduced business due to the pandemic. “The buzz to jump on board with being environmentally conscious and sustainable unfortunately comes with a price to those responsibly participating, thus buying a carpet that comes with these assurances is often sufficient to the investor to give peace of mind that their facility is positively contributing to reducing Greenhouse Gasses (CO²) and providing wellbeing to the occupants. We have recently launched three new modular flooring collections and planning another three by mid-2021, all of which have an environmental reuse, repurpose, recycle and environmental theme to them,” says Richard Morris, Global Business Director, Carpets Inter.
