As an internationally known importer of handmade rugs and axminister carpeting, Interior Resources specializes in creating the perfect flooring product for each designer’s project. We inspire creativity with an in-house artist who works with the designer and our custom team to design the rug or carpet, especially to your tastes. When we are not creating custom designs for our clients, Interior Resources develops their own line of custom rugs under their Black Label Collection brand.
The custom process does not have to be daunting or complicated. Our design team will use your fabrics and suggestions for patterns, our showroom samples, and our wealth of renderings to establish the look you desire for the room. Once a rendering is completed and approved, a 2’x3’ strike off is then made in your design, colors, and quality of choice. After strike approval, the rendering, poms, and strike will be sent to the appropriate weavers on the other side of the world. We import from countries like Nepal, China, and India.
Our Partnership With Goodweave
A GoodWeave marketing partner since 2007, Interior Resources has not only carried GoodWeave certified lines in its Dallas showroom but also made a financial contribution to support GoodWeave’s mission. When the company decided to produce its own line of custom Tibetan rugs, Interior Resources became an importer of GoodWeave certified rugs in its own right.
“When we are not working on our designer projects, we are continually developing new designs for our own showroom stock,” says Paige Sowden, manager of Interior Resources’ custom department and daughter of founders Jack and Merikay Green. “Designers appreciate the ever-changing styles displayed in the showroom and the large selection of custom examples.”
Recognizing the important role designers can play in influencing consumer choices, Interior Resources staff focuses on educating them about child labor. “A designer’s hunt for the ‘perfect’ rug should include the history of how the rug was manufactured,” Paige says. “No one wants to believe that a child was endangered to produce their rug, and the best way to ensure you’re purchasing a socially responsible product is to look for the GoodWeave label. We want our collections from Nepal to meet these standards and better the lives of the weavers themselves.”
