Rooted in ancient Peruvian traditions that date back to the Inca Civilization, Sumaq rugs are handmade by local artisans. Sumaq firmly believes in supporting local industry in Peru and South America, and promotes ethical manufacturing practices every step of the way. No alpacas are killed in the making of Sumaq rugs. Sumaq Alpaca Rugs is based out of Montréal and Vancouver.
Our Ethical Approach: every rug creates an opportunity
The Sumaq approach focuses on maximizing benefits for people and communities while minimizing impacts on the environment. Together with local artisans, Sumaq works to foster a greener, more sustainable world. This is achieved through the use of alpaca fleece, an ecologically friendly natural fibre, and the fact that Sumaq encourages manufacturers to adopt ethical practices in every aspect of their supply chain.
