BaseCamp Rugs is a start-up that is committed to creating sustainable and eco-friendly rugs inspired by the beauty of American landscapes. At BaseCamp Rugs, we believe that sustainability is the key to a better future, and we are dedicated to creating products that not only look good but also do good.

Our story began when our founder, Mike Donaldson, realized the challenges of establishing a sustainable business model for weaving. With the cost of materials and the time required to create a quality product, pricing items in a way that is both fair to the weaver and affordable for potential customers can be difficult. However, rather than giving up on his passion, Mike decided to take a different approach.

Last October, Mike traveled to India and established Om Shiv Enterprises, a buying and sourcing agency that would allow him to connect directly with the highest quality materials at the best possible prices. Om Shiv's role is to ensure supply chain transparency and ethical manufacturing practices at every step, which is important to BaseCamp Rugs' mission of creating sustainable products.

With the help of Om Shiv Enterprises, BaseCamp Rugs has been able to begin importing GOTs certified organic cotton yoga rugs from Panipat, India. The company is focusing on color palettes derived from various American landscapes, primarily classic climbing destinations. These rugs are not only beautiful and inspired by nature, but they are also made using sustainable and ethical practices.

At BaseCamp Rugs, we are committed to making a positive impact on the environment and the people involved in the production process. By using eco-friendly materials and supporting ethical manufacturing practices, we are able to create products that customers can feel good about purchasing. Our approach to weaving is a sustainable one, and it is a model that other artisans can look to as they navigate the challenges of creating a successful and ethical business.

Our rugs are perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors and wants to bring a piece of nature into their home. Whether you're a hiker, climber, or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of American landscapes, BaseCamp Rugs has a rug for you. Each rug is unique and handmade, making it a one-of-a-kind piece that will last for years to come.

In conclusion, BaseCamp Rugs is a start-up that is paving the way for sustainable weaving practices. By establishing a buying and sourcing agency in India and focusing on eco-friendly materials and ethical manufacturing practices, our team at BaseCamp Rugs is able to create high-quality products that are both beautiful and sustainable. Join us on our mission to make the world a better place, one rug at a time.
