GoodWeave certification helps you avoid child labour when buying handmade rugs

Many consumers want to be sure that the beautiful rug they are about to buy wasn’t created at the cost of children.

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. GoodWeave also works to provide education and opportunities to rescued and at-risk children.

GoodWeave lists a number of carpet and rug retailers in Australia that sell certified rugs. You can also find online suppliers on the same page.

GoodWeave is an international non government organisation and one of  13 full-members of the ISEAL Alliance, the global association for sustainability standards whose Codes of Good Practice are seen as global references for developing and implementing credible standards.
