Lude is a social enterprise that employs senior citizens and utilizes potential textile waste creating design rugs. It gives reason for retired people to get up in the morning and look forward to something, thus also saving a little bit of our green planet.

On old wooden weaving looms Lude employees create stylish and colourful rugs out of textile production leftovers and recycled garments. Every bit of the work process is done by hand, starting from sorting out the raw material, cutting it into strips and then weaving. You can imagine how much warmth of the hands is put in every rug that comes out of Lude.

Already in the first year of Lude’s operations it received local and international recognition, such as the International Quality Innovation Award and recognition from the Sustainability Index of Latvia.
