Our supply chain begins in Indore, the largest city in the State of Madhya Pradesh, Central India and home to leading technical and performance textile manufacturer Candor Textiles Pvt. Ltd.

Gerhard van Clewe GmbH & Co. KG is the experienced partner in the production of our innovative Love a Duck rugs. Founded in 1954 in Dingden, Rhineland/Westphalia, in the center of Germany’s most important textile region, the van Clewe Group continues to be run as an independent family business.
The company specializes in quality textile finishing for the European textile market. It operates as a STeP by OEKO-TEX® certified company. Also, van Clewe is ISO 14001 certified in environmental management and ISO 50001 certified in energy management.
In 2020, the van Clewe family expanded its versatile machinery with state-of-the-art textile printing technology. This forward-looking investment allows a wide range of new applications. It also forms one of the essential, high-effort process steps required for the production of each individual Love a Duck rug.
Together with van Clewe’s experts, we have worked out and tested all the process steps in close collaboration. Thanks to their commitment, open-mindedness and perseverance, we have succeeded in putting rug production on a completely new footing.
Pushing the technical boundaries of quality rug manufacturing also means pushing surface pattern design beyond the familiar motives customarily found on carpet pile.
