Rugs with A meaningful mission

Borrowed from the Kalora website: Since 1984, St. Jacobs-based Kalora Interiors has been offering decor solutions to home furnishings industry, providing rugs to accentuate great furniture. Prior to 1984 the company’s founders had begun working together on a United Nations project in Somali refugee camps, eventually realizing their goal of starting a multi-national non-profit company for development, called International Development Enterprises (iDE). Kalora’s objectives were to be a successful business, but also to be a steady source of financial support for iDE. Natural fibre jute rugs from Bangladesh were one of the initial product lines, and since then their collection has expanded (and is regularly updated) to include a wide range of designs produced using heatset polypropylene and Polyester, among other materials.

a rug for every room

Kalora carries a very diverse range of styles, textures, and sizes of rugs so they have something to suit every room and space in your home. Whether you live on your own in an open-concept apartment or are surrounded by children in a 4-bedroom detached home, an area rug (or several) can really help to define living spaces and foster a welcoming environment. Area rugs are particularly popular in living rooms or great rooms and in nurseries, though, implemented correctly, they can also be beneficial in home offices, bedrooms, and even dining rooms. Area rugs can help with protecting wood floors, provide some extra cushion for crawling toddlers or just general walking in bare feet, and also absorb some sound to help reduce echo and maintain a more serene environment.
