Medina Kilim Rugs - PET Yarn
GoodWeave® began in 1995 as a grassroots campaign in India by Kailash
Satyarthi, then Chairman of the South Asian Coalition on Child
Servitude. GoodWeave’s mission is to end child labour in the rug
industry and to replicate its market- based approach in other sectors.
Satyarthi was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for his work.
The GoodWeave® label is the best assurance that no child labour was used in the making of your rug. In order to earn the GoodWeave label, rug producers and importers must be licensed under the GoodWeave certification programme and sign a legally binding contract to adhere to GoodWeave’s no child labour and no bonded labour Standard.
Buying a GoodWeave® certified rug at Namaste supports educational opportunities for children who otherwise might be required to work. Handcrafted by adult artisans, these rugs make a beautiful statement at home & make the world a better place. For further information visit www.goodweave.org
