Biraj worked at the factory from morning to night. He would care for the weavers’ children in the morning and switch to knotting carpets in the afternoon. Luckily, he was discovered by a GoodWeave inspector after only two weeks of labor.

CariniLang

For Joseph and Aurelie of Carini Lang, a rug’s essence must appeal to both the eyes and the heart. Much more than a simple floor covering, each carpet represents the energy of all the individuals involved in its making, and a rug made with child labor carries a negative energy that can be seen in the carpet and felt in the room. Carini Lang’s participation in the GoodWeave® certification program ensures that the rugs convey beauty, inside and out.
