Children's Stories

13-year-old Jaidul and his family live in a small village in the Malda district of West Bengal. He and his mother, two sisters, brother and paralyzed father weave towels at home, but even with their combined effort, they can barely support themselves. Their wages cover just two meals a day for six people. Jaidul began to weave carpets at a factory in order to supplement the family’s meager income.

Spotlight On Importers/Designers

CariniLang

For Joseph and Aurelie of Carini Lang, a rug’s essence must appeal to both the eyes and the heart. Much more than a simple floor covering, each carpet represents the energy of all the individuals involved in its making, and a rug made with child labor carries a negative energy that can be seen in the carpet and felt in the room. Carini Lang’s participation in the GoodWeave® certification program ensures that the rugs convey beauty, inside and out.
