Kahrs’ Revolutionary Fair Trade and FSC Certified Wood Flooring

Posted on August 6, 2023


Kahrs Unveils Ethical Wood Flooring: Fair Trade & FSC Certified | Sustainable Interiors

In the heart of Sweden, the revered flooring craftspeople of Kahrs have birthed a pioneering concept, harmonizing humanity’s yearning for both ethical commerce and a tender respect for our ancient forests. This creation, the world’s inaugural wood flooring, carries the dual seals of Fair Trade and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). As autumn paints the leaves in golden hues, this innovative offering will make its quiet debut, its merits first to be tested in the corridors of the commercial realm.

Fair Trade’s embrace safeguards those artisans from distant shores, ensuring their hands are rewarded justly for the tapestries they weave and granting them a bridge to foreign bazaars. Meanwhile, the FSC stands as a sentinel for our woodlands, guiding a future where forests breathe freely, intertwined with matters of communal well-being and sanctuary.

This harmonious duet of certifications has sprung from a seed sown in the fertile grounds of collaboration between Fair Trade and the Forest Stewardship Council, an alliance dating back to the gentle winds of 2009. With deep reverence, Kahrs sources the very essence of this flooring from the serene embrace of Curacautin Valle in distant Chile. The fruits of this endeavor will soon grace the domains of giants in construction and automotive elegance, their spaces transformed by the essence of this responsibly-sourced timber.

Bruce Uhler, the voice of Kahrs’ green soul, perceives this venture as more than just business. To him, it’s a tapestry of commitment, promising to touch countless lives nested in the bosom of our global forests. With the delicate footprint of Fair Trade, products that not only grace our homes but also aid in their embellishment, find homes across continents, from the bustling lanes of the United Kingdom to the furthest corners of our shared world.
