Cutting denim strips: 5h
Weaving and finishing: 14h
We love supporting local businesses as they often have a smaller carbon footprint. Furthermore, we wanted to let you make the final decision on how much you are willing to pay. All carpets have a fixed production price: 60x80 cost 42€ to make; 80x150 cost 140€ to make; 130x200 cost 325€ to make. Also, they all follow our new pricing policy principles and the markup on all products is 2-3x (+ VAT). However, we don’t want to have a set retail price. Our goal is to showcase the time, craftsmanship, and dedication it takes to produce these, putting the pricing in your hands.
