Children's Stories

When Sarina, who hails from Nepal’s Chitwan district, was 10 years old, her mother died from cancer. The family fell into utter poverty; just  being able to afford two meals a day was difficult.  Sarina was forced to drop out of school and work in a carpet factory.

A GoodWeave inspector rescued Sarina from the carpet factory in 2007 and brought her to Hamro Ghar, Nepal GoodWeave’s rehabilitation center. Sarina is now a diligent and disciplined eight grader at Laboratory Higher Secondary School.

Spotlight On Retailers

Christiane Millinger

When the one-woman powerhouse behind Christiane Millinger Oriental Rugs and Textiles speaks about rugs, it is as if she is speaking of a treasured friend. "Touching them, seeing them eight or 10 hours a day—I learned their history, where they came from and who made them." It is that sensibility and her concern that the weavers should live comfortable lives, that propelled her to join GoodWeave when she relaunched her company.
