ZOHA aims at sustaining LIFE on this planet by doing without hazardous solvents and colors in the production process.
ZOHA is as green as you want it to be - from its green carpets and rugs independently tested by SGS and Woolmark to its manufacturing monitored and audited by Rugmark.
Rugmark and Care & Fair
ZOHA is member of the RUGMARK foundation india - a foundation which ensures that each rug bearing its label woven at ZOHA is without the use of child labour on safe looms and in appropriate working conditions. We contribute 0.25% towards aiding impoverished weaving communities while our partner stores contribute 1% of the purchase price of all RUGMARK carpets which goes directly to UNICEF to build schools and healthcare facilities for impoverished weaver families.
85% of all the rugs manufactured by ZOHA bear the RUGMARK label. RUGMARK conducts spot checks on our looms and factories to check that we are not in contravention of the 1956 United Nations Convention on the Abolition of Slavery and exploitation of the child labour and any such applicable regulation.

The other 15% rugs manufactured at ZOHA bear the Care & Fair label that does similar work.

ZOHA is proud to support the Indian Hand Made Cottage Carpet Industry (the declining art of rug making) by promoting Homeworking in all its processes and empowering lives and quality of life across India.
Homeworking is an important aspect of the cottage carpet industry in India making a significant contribution to household incomes among predominantly poor families. In developing countries as many as 300 million people are employed by supporting Homeworking.
