Urban Natural Value: Ethically Sourced

 

When you shop ethically sourced furniture, you shop quality pieces made from non-toxic materials sourced using environmentally safe methods. All furniture found at Urban Natural Home is handcrafted by fairly-compensated artisans and tradespeople, free from harmful or exploitative labor practices.  

Copeland Furniture sources US hardwood from legal, well-managed forests that are considered Low Risk in all five Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) controlled wood risk categories. They use a durable catalyzed varnish finish that is GREENGUARD Certified for low chemical emissions on all of their products. For all cushions, Copeland uses flexible polyurethane foam that has been approved by CertiPUR-US®

Similarly, American Leather has exclusively used foam, leather, fabric, and Ultrasuede® that are free from fire retardants since 2014. Trusted Workshop Partner Maple Corner Woodworks uses a non-toxic, zero VOC (volatile organic compounds) raw linseed oil-based finish for their wood furniture. American Leather uses soy-based BiOH® Polyols Renew™ foam cushioning that is fully recyclable and available in a wide assortment of firmness and densities.

Ethically sourced furniture also includes the treatment of the Makers who craft these pieces. Loloi Rugs is a proud partner of GoodWeave, a non-profit company that audits factories in India and ensures no child, forced, or bonded labor is used. Our Workshop Partners are industry leaders in their methods of handcrafting furniture and home decor. Urban Natural Home only collaborates with trusted Workshop Partners that practice and encourage the production of ethically sourced pieces.
