Armadillo wanted to hold themselves to the highest standards in the world so customers have the confidence to know that they are investing in a truly ethical product .
Sustainability and social responsibility have always been at their core and they're the first rug brand in Australia or the USA to become a Certified B Corporation. Armadillo have also received the Declare Label from the International Living Future Institute. B Corp certification measures Armadillo as an overall company, whereas the Declare Label examines the rugs themselves.
It is extremely difficult to become a B Corp and Armadillo have undergone rigorous assessment across 5 areas:
Armadillo need to be verified every 3 years to maintain certification.
The Declare Label is recognised globally for its stringent requirements, which supersede Green Star in AU/NZ. All of Armadillo rugs now come with a Declare Label. The purpose of the Declare Label is to be transparent about the additives in their rugs. Like a nutrition label, it outlines exactly how each rug was made, what it's made of and where it will go at the end of its life.
