What does a fair trade rug mean?

It's not just a buzzword - it's a commitment to equality, transparency, and respect. When you purchase from Madouk, you're investing in a product that's crafted with care - not just in its quality, but also of the people who make it.

We ensure the artisans we work with receive fair wages and direct commissions, safe working conditions, the respect they rightfully deserve.

Supporting artisans: the heart of Madouk

The skilled artisans we work with are the soul of what we do. They pass down age-old techniques from generation to generation and preserve their heritage through beautiful works of art.

The direct impact of fair trade

  • Sustains livelihoods by paying a direct commission on top of above-market wages

  • Supports families by enabling preservation of ancient techniques and knowledge

  • Strengthens communities by maintaining safe working conditions and consistent jobs

Empowering communities beyond the weave

Our commitment doesn't stop with commissions for the artisans. A fair trade rug from Madouk means investing in the communities our artisans come from.

We work towards the betterment of these communities by contributing to their economic growth and social well-being.
