Who makes your rug from Silk Road Weaves? Only adult artisans!
It is critical to me as an artist that no illegal child labor is ever used in the rugs we make for you.
Of special note: The company that weaves Silk Road Weaves™ rugs for us is owned by one of the founders of Rugmark™. In 1997, the owner received an award of distinction from MAHR (Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights), for fighting against child labor, especially in the carpet industry, and was honored for running her company with certain social philosophies and outstanding ethical business practices that include many employee benefits as part of their company structure.
Each rug from Silk Road Weaves carries a Goodweave label that certifies it as child-labor-free. Rescuing the children from working and placing them in schools where they can receive an education has multiple benefits to the families in general.
As a member of Goodweave, a percentage of all sales of Silk Road Weaves Tibetan rugs is donated to the goal of eliminating child labor in the carpet industry.
To learn more, visit www.GoodWeave.org. Formerly known as RugMark, the new GoodWeave label assures that no children under age 14 were employed by the facility responsible for making the labeled rug.
You can help eliminate child labor in the rug industry. It’s all about the Human Connection.
