Ethical & Fair Trade Rugs

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.  Below is where you can find fairly made and fair trade rugs which were made without exploiting any children.
