Unable to find elegant, well-made rugs for their own homes, founders Jodie Fried and Sally Pottharst decided to create their own. Founded in 2009, Armadillo is the culmination of their efforts, melding age-old methods in rug production with contemporary design.
Armadillo's commitment to social responsibility is demonstrated in their sustainable practices and support of the community of artisans that hand-make all of their products. Using Fair Trade practices with natural and sustainable fibers, Armadillo truly embodies their motto: "Our rugs lie lightly on this earth."
As of 2021, Armadillo is a certified B-Corporation – meeting the highest standards of social and environmental responsibility and transparency in their practices. Lekker Home is proud to be Armadillo's only Boston showroom.
