Started from humble beginnings, Company C was created by husband and wife Walter and Christine Chapin in 1994 in a garage behind their New Hampshire home. But the perfect mixture of Christine's passion for creating colorful, handcrafted textiles and Walter's love of business, led the two to embark on a journey that would soon become a leading manufacturer of exquisite rugs. Colorful living is reflected in every rug they create -- from product design to business operations, their impact on the environment, and partnerships. Company C is now a premier design studio and leading manufacturer of exceptionally designed rugs.
Fun Facts about Company C
Company C is committed to partnering with manufacturers that share their goal to source sustainable resources that have minimal impact on the environment. Since 2005, Company C has been a member of GoodWeave, an organization that partners with rug manufacturers to ensure carpets are made without the use of child labor, improve working conditions and provide fair wages for their employees. Each year, the company donates a portion of their rug sales to this effort, which has helped improve the lives of children in India through education. The company is also Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified and their upholstered furniture is manufactured here in the USA.
