GoodWeave USA

GoodWeave's mission is to end exploitative child labor in the carpet industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in weaving communities. The GoodWeave label is your best assurance that no child labor was used in the manufacture of a rug. The organization was founded on this premise: If enough people demand certified child-labor-free rugs, manufacturers will only employ adult artisans and the exploitation of children in the industry will end.

More than 60 percent of girls in Uttar Pradesh drop out of school before completing fifth grade, as is the case in many other Indian states. Community-based programs, made possible by GoodWeave with donations from GlobalGiving and others, provide free education, along with books and uniforms, to girls rescued from carpet work.
