Each month, Dovetail will spotlight one of our eco-friendly flooring collections. Our October spotlight is Riviera Home.
What makes Riveria Home eco-friendly?
One of the world’s leading flooring brands, Riviera are one of only a few manufacturers who craft bio-degradable, eco-friendly carpets from 100% natural and sustainable resources.
When they reach the end of their life cycle, 90% of carpets (made using Nylon, Polypropylene or Polyester fibres) will take up to 500 years to break-down in the soil. However, Riviera carpets will naturally bio-degrade into the earth over a period of one to five years. Plus, as their carpets are made from 100% natural resources, no harmful chemicals or VOCs will be released into the soil.
What collections do Riviera Home offer?
The Tufted Collection offers eight ranges of carpet. Stylish, durable and high quality, they are completely bio-degradable and are made from 100% natural wool. Riviera can guarantee that no chemicals, treatments or dyes were used at any point during production.
