NODE is a non-profit social business. Our aim is to make as much impact for fair trade as we can. We work with the worlds best designers and illustrators and convert their images into the highest quality hand-made fair trade carpets.

Our rug makers, Kumbeshwar are a founder member of Fair Trade Nepal. Employees are taught literacy and skills. In addition to fair wages their work supports a school of 260 children and an orphanage of nineteen.

We are very proud to produce our carpets with Kumbeshwar Technical School in Kathmandu, Nepal. They were set up as an adult education and support centre and train and work with disadvantaged people, mainly women.

KTS are a founder member of Fair Trade Nepal and are WFTO accredited.

We produce our carpets entirely by hand using age old and natural Tibetan carpet making techniques. All our carpets are made from bales of pure Tibetan wool. It is hand spun into thread, hand dyed with natural and non-polluting dyes, and then hand-knotted on our looms into carpet. We worked with Satyendra and the design team and found a way to convert our digital designs into carpets on the loom using graphs.
