A business model that treasures people and the environment
When everyone reaches their full potential, the entire society is uplifted. Following this vision, in 2004 we founded Jaipur Rugs Foundation (JRF). Its mandate is reaching out to remote rural areas and establish bonds with the village communities, so that they can start weaving not only rugs but also their own lives.
The Foundation is currently working in five
Gujarat, Rajasthan, Uttar
Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.
Impact to lives
Education to rural people
Empowering Rural India
We provide reliable and affordable health care services to the communities that do not have access to these services or even the basic knowledge on how to access them.
We offer holistic development for children and youth and alternative education programs to our artisans in India’s rural communities, with a particular focus on bridging the gender gap.
We help artisan communities to learn more and access banking services, as well as government funds and welfare schemes.
We implement skill development programs for a range of underprivileged communities, including inmated and the disabled, to improve their living standards through carpet weaving.
From Loom to Home
Thanks to our work on the field, in direct contact with the artisan communities, each of our rugs can be traced back all the way to the person who wove it. This extreme level of traceability comes to life in the Postcard Project, an initiative that gives our customers the chance to exchange thoughts and feelings with the artisan who made their rugs.
Reducing our Impact on the Planet
The Manchaha collection uses hand-spun leftover yarn batches, thus reducing waste and making the color palette of our rugs as unique as their design.
Obtained from GOTS certified and eco-friendly raw colors, the dyes in our rugs are long-lasting, also thanks to a state-of-the-art dying fixation process.
Maintaining Global Standards

Jaipur Rugs Company, as a socially responsible company, strictly ensures that no child labor is involved in any process of our carpet manufacturing. As a Child-Labor-Free Rug Mark Licensee, Jaipur Rugs binds itself to the contract with Rug Mark Foundation to produce rugs without involvement of child labor, to register all looms with the Rug Mark Foundation, and to allow access to looms for unannounced inspectors.
