GOODWEAVE ACCREDITED RUGS
Rugs are one of the few items in a home that have the decorative prowess to connect everything together. A rug with a striking pattern can be the defining feature of a living room, bathroom, kitchen, or even a bedroom. Your rug is the most-seen aspect of your decor—so make it one you actually adore.
How can you adore a rug? — By choosing a pattern, style, colour and form that resonates with who you are. Better yet, choose a GoodWeave rug. GoodWeave rugs are certified to have been made by adults. They are part and parcel of the global fight against child labour, a noble cause.
Who Are GoodWeave and What Do They Do?
GoodWeave is a not-for-profit global organisation that is on a mission to put an end to child-based labour especially with regard to the weaving of rugs. Any rug that proudly displays a distinctive blue, gold and white logo is certified to have been made by adults.
Did you know that nearly one out of every ten children in the world works as a child labourer? Children must be allowed to be free and to pursue their aspirations. They must be allowed, at the absolute least, to be children. As such, GoodWeave is dedicated to putting a stop to child labour in carpet weaving communities all over the world.
GoodWeave envisions a world in which no child is forced to labour instead of attending school, and where children have the freedom, access to education, and a right to a childhood. It accomplishes this by supporting weaving families, rescuing and training child labourers, monitoring supply chains, and, of course, certifying child-labour-free rugs.
