With over 35 years experience in successfully exceeding customer expectations, a genuine passion for rugs and their attendant cultures, and a discerning eye for quality and value - we offer a vetted selection from the vast array of rugs available in the marketplace along with a unique and unprecedented commitment.
It’s simple. When you purchase any rug with Rubicon Rugs, 10% of the sale price will be donated to one of the international leaders in providing a solution towards ending illegal child labor: GoodWeave, Project Mala, or Unicef. Once your purchase is finalized, you’ll receive an email acknowledgment from the organization thanking you for your contribution. Your rug will not only add beauty to your home, but every time you see it, you’ll be pleased knowing you’ve contributed towards making the world a better place.
