U.S. Ethical Shopping Guide

Rugs & Mats

For a long time many of the rugs sold around the world were made with forced child labor; small children weaving until their hands became arthritic.  Watch this short video from Good Weave to hear the rest of the story and how they are making a difference.  All the fairly made and fair trade rugs you see below were made without exploiting any children.

(NOTES: This is a shopping guide so prices and availability can change without notice.  If you buy through some of these links, a small amount may come back to help support the mission of Change the World by How You Shop.)
