GoodWeave International (GWI) is a non-governmental organization working to end child labor in the rug industry and offer educational opportunities to children in weaving communities. The GoodWeave label is the best assurance that no child labor was used in the making of a rug.
More than one in 10 of the world’s children toil in the global economy today, and child labor and trafficking are especially rampant in the rug industry. Over 250,000 kids—some as young as six years old—are forced to give up their childhoods to make rugs for our homes and businesses. GoodWeave makes consumers aware of this tragedy and gives them a transformative alternative: certified child-labor-free rugs.
