As Alternative Technology has no control over such outages or internet connectivity, we offer no Outage Policy to compensate for member inconvenience.

Product variation: Due to the very nature of lack of precision in appearance of same color across different computer, and due to the individual nature of the weavers and factories, the color and texture of the actual rug may vary from what is seen on the computer screen.

† exploRUG is an online marketing tool for your custom rug business. It allows users to browse through your collection of designs under different categories and create their own color combinations from among your list of available colors. Users can even customize the material (wool or silk) and weave (pile or loop) and see realistic simulations as a carpet, close up views, or laid out in different rooms. The customized rug can then be ordered online with all the customization information automatically included in the order. The front end of this software can be integrated on your own website.
