Ethical Weaving

Since its establishment in 1994, the GoodWeave program has been at the forefront of the global fight against child labor, particularly within the handmade rug industry. The program employs a multifaceted approach to combat exploitative labor practices and promote ethical sourcing.

GoodWeave's certification process sets stringent standards for rug producers, ensuring that certified companies do not engage in child labor. Through regular inspections and on-site visits, the program monitors compliance with these standards, fostering transparency and accountability in the supply chain.

Beyond monitoring, GoodWeave actively engages in rescuing children from exploitative labor situations and providing them with access to education, rehabilitation services, and family support. 

Consumer awareness is also a key focus of GoodWeave's efforts. Through educational campaigns and partnerships with retailers, the program raises awareness about the prevalence of child labor in the rug industry and the importance of supporting ethically sourced products.

Additionally, GoodWeave collaborates with governments, businesses, and NGOs to advocate for policy changes and industry-wide initiatives aimed at eliminating child labor and promoting ethical practices.

Overall, the GoodWeave program has made significant strides in protecting vulnerable children, improving working conditions, and fostering a culture of accountability in the handmade rug industry. As it continues its mission, GoodWeave remains a beacon of hope for a future where all children are free from exploitation in global supply chains.
