Perhaps being the world's first company to manufacture GOTS certified organic broadloom and area rugs would be reason enough to begin down this road.
Would you want your children to crawl on a rug laced with chemicals?
But that's only part of our story. The other part involves partnering with women in rural India to weave our collection of rugs.
The idea for Organic Weave was born during my first trip to India in 1989. After witnessing widespread child labor in the rug industry, I promised myself that one day I would get involved and work with women in rural India. I understand that children are compelled to work out of economic necessity, and that no Mother would have her child work if she had an economic alternative.
Organic Weave provides dignified work and sustainable income to adult women weavers. Earning a living wage, our weavers are proud to participate in the economic welfare of their families.
Every rug we make is GOTS certified organic as well as GoodWeave certified, guaranteeing that no illegal child labor is involved in our process.
We make impeccably handcrafted rugs, the way rugs have been made for centuries, with total transparency.....
Organic Weave is the world’s first rug manufacturer to be certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). GOTS is the world’s leading standard for organic textile certification. GOTS criteria includes ecological and social accountability standards and is backed up by independent certification of the entire supply chain. This includes independent testing and certification of raw, semi-finished, and unfinished textile products at all levels of processing to ensure that the end product is suitable for certification as “100% organic” or “made with 90% organic materials”.
Every Organic Weave rug is certified free of illegal child labor by the internationally recognized organization, GoodWeave.
Organic Weave proudly supports the efforts to eliminate child labor in the carpet industry.
