How big is your company?

We have two full time teammates, and two part time teammates. Please be patient with us as we run two businesses. ;) 

Buy Back Program, what's that?

Here at Work in progress, we believe in circular sustainable design. This means that you can sell back your used Work in progress product(s) after you've owned it for 2 or more years. We will review the condition of your product upon return. We can issue you a store credit. We'll do our best to re-sell items in good condition while others will be recycled into something new. 

Can you do custom orders?

We are happy to customize dimensions and/or colors for wholesale and trade partners, please contact our partners at Denvir Enterprises. (hey@denvirenterprises.com)


I'm an interior designer, who can I speak with about your trade program?

What is a pre-order?

A pre-order is an item made to order as part of a small batch. The catch: your item won’t be shipped until after it’s been made. The plus side: there’s no overproduction, which means a reduction in waste. If you’ve placed a pre-order, Captain Planet thanks you.

Care + Maintenance 

How do I care for my new rug?

Your rug is handwoven and made of 100% mid-weight cotton. Because it is made of natural materials, you can expect some wear and tear over time. To care for your rug, we recommend using an eco-friendly cleaner, and to spot clean as necessary. Your rug can also be dry cleaned.
