With technological advancements our generation has really no excuse not to try and make things ethically. Sustainability in interiors does exist but manufacturing using wholly sustainable methods is still very challenging. Frame & Cover are trying to do just that. Set up by Corinne Webb, she’s on a mission to create modern, bold and covetable designs using wholly sustainable methods and materials. Ethically made for good cause too.
After spending 10 years working in the home furnishings industry as a designer, Corinne wanted to create a brand that had the environment and style at its heart – in equal measure:
“A passion for home furnishing design and a sense of ecological responsibility have lead me to launch Frame & Cover. Today, design should be all about sustainability because we have the technology, knowledge and resources to make beautiful, highly individual design that doesn’t harm our planet. Everything we do at Frame & Cover is based on this simple principle.”
The brand just released its latest collection of fabrics, rugs and furniture. The rug is a vibrant and bold kelim rug inspired by the Scaridae print design. Scaridae is crafted from a high grade fine New Zealand wool. They use a finer wool than is usually found in kelim rugs, allowing to create a finer and more intricate design. It is made by Indian artisans from Goodweave approved makers. Goodweave International is a charity organisation that ensures that producers are adhering to set guidelines and are free of child and forced labour. The Scaridae rug is Goodweave certified and carries the GoodWeave label, making it an ethical purchase that supports families and communities throughout India and Nepal.
Corinne says: “This fact from Goodweave illustrates why to us it is so important that our rug is Goodweave certified: Tainted Carpets, a report released by Harvard University in January 2014, found that 45% of carpet workers in India are in some form of forced labour and that one in five are children.”
The latest collection is also made up of bespoke chairs handmade to order in the UK in either Frame & Cover’s fabrics or your own fabric.
