Children's Stories

Twelve year-old Manju grew up in Sajban, in one of Nepal's least developed districts.

Manju was denied the right to go to school in order to help pay for her brother's private school education..

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.
