Did you know 1 and a half acres of forest are cut down every second?
Even more shocking, estimates from the United Nations suggest 18 million acres of forest are lost each year. This is a staggering number, so Dovetail Interiors are passionate about making a change.
We are so excited to introduce our NEW range of eco-friendly carpets and flooring. Some of the biggest names in environmentally progressive textiles are now available at our Norwich showroom, including Riviera, Ted Todd and Forbo. 100% natural and renewable, these stylish collections both look good AND help protect the Earth.
Simple yet sophisticated, the indulgently tactile designs of Alternative Flooring are perfect for any home. Every one of their carpets are made from ethically-sourced fibres. From the soft, silky textures of the Tiliaceae plant to the pure, white fibres of the Agave Sisalana plant, these innovative designs are both natural and sustainable.
Alternative Flooring use 100% wool fibres for their stunning wool collections. Their Barefoot collection is made using completely natural, undyed wool and handwoven using traditional looms.
A truly eco-friendly carpet solution. Their bio-degradable, ethically-sourced carpets are crafted from 100% natural and sustainable resources — one of only a few working manufacturers to do this.
Did you know 90% of carpets take up to 500 years to break-down in the soil? This is because they are crafted using man-made fibres, such as Nylon, Polypropylene or Polyester. These fibres derive from oil, so the toxins released can be really harmful for the environment. But not Riviera!
Riviera carpets take between one to five years to naturally bio-degrade. Plus, as they are made from 100% natural resources, no harmful chemicals or VOCs will be released into the soil.
What’s more, Riviera Home™ have recently introduced their exciting new eco-collections, crafted from 100% natural wool. Therefore, no dyestuffs, chemicals or stain blocking treatments were added during their creation.
For over 20 years, Ted Todd have pushed the boundaries for wooden flooring. As a result, they are now one of the world’s leading flooring brands. Completely unrivalled in quality and creativity, their beautiful, innovative wooden floors are both stunning AND environmentally friendly.
Ted Todd ensure all of their flooring is responsibly sourced. In fact, 95% of their wood is FSC® and PEFC certified. Indeed, their wooden floors are crafted using 100% natural hardwood with ZERO emissions or harmful pollutants!
In a world of environmental awareness, CORKART utilise cork — a natural, bio-degradable and 100% sustainable resource — to craft warm, luxurious and comfortable flooring.
Cork is an incredible material. Harvested from the Cork Oak, it survives without the need for fertiliser, irrigation or chemical herbicides. In fact, it is the only tree where the bark regenerates naturally, meaning it can be sustainably stripped without the tree being harmed.
What’s more, the bark from the Cork Oak retains a significant amount of CO2 while it grows, while also helping support natural biodiversity, such as shrubs and wildlife.
Marmoleum by Forbo
Marmoleum a natural floor covering that’s over 150 years old. Associated with durability, quality, sustainability and truly innovative design, it’s created from 97% natural raw materials, including flax, linseed, rosin and limestone.
Marmoleum flooring is versatile in application, colour and design. It can easily be fixed to your floor with low solvent adhesive, in keeping with its sustainable, eco-friendly attributes.
