Bolon started production more than 70 years ago with a bold idea: to produce woven rugs from waste material. Put simply, it was recycling – long before the word was invented. For us, sustainability is built into our DNA. It’s an important part of who we are as a company. We are proud that our sustainability work covers all our products and not just selected niche collections. This means that when it comes to sustainability work, Bolon is the global industry leader.
All Bolon floors are made with 100% renewable energy and contain recycled material. And every year the percentage increases. Sustainability is woven into everything we do. Just like in our floors. We as a company have a clear responsibility, not only to change the traditional flooring industry with bold design. We also have a responsibility to the planet we will leave to future generations.
