Sustainability and GoodWeave

Your rug will come with a GoodWeave label affixed to the back. The GoodWeave label means that no child, forced or bonded labor was used in the making of a your rug, and that your purchase supports programs that educate children and ensure decent work for adults. Here’s how it works.

Each GoodWeave label has a unique code that can be traced back to the licensed producer. Licensed producers must meet the requirements of the GoodWeave Standard–a standard rooted in three unwavering principles:

  • No child labor is allowed

  • No forced or bonded labor is allowed

  • Workplace conditions are documented and verifiable

GoodWeave makes regular, unannounced inspections of all production facilities that cover tier one factories and all outsourced production sites, including homes, to verify compliance with this Standard. These producers also undergo a separate annual audit to document their performance against the Standard's following progress principles:

  • Freedom of association and collective bargaining are recognized

  • No discrimination is practiced

  • Decent working conditions are respected, including workplace safety and health, wages, working hours, and disciplinary practices

  • Negative environmental impacts of production are identified and minimized

 

All of our mills are GoodWeave certified
