GoodWeave has extended its global reach with new licensees from Germany, Italy and Sweden. Hamburg's tm interior, Milan-based Kristiina Lassus Studio and Sweden's byHenzel have each earned GoodWeave's child-labour-free certification label. The ethical and financial commitment of these three international brands further supports GoodWeave's goal of eradicating child labour in the rug industry.
"We are excited that these three important European companies have committed to implementing our standard in weaving communities," says Nina Smith, GoodWeave's executive director. "Their involvement moves us another step closer to our goal of eliminating the exploitation of children in the rug industry."
GoodWeave is working to end exploitative child labour in the rug industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in South Asia.
