Joseph Carini Carpets

For Joseph of Joseph Carini Carpets, 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. Joseph Carini Carpets' participation in the GoodWeave® certification program ensures that the rugs convey beauty, inside and out.
