A million knots make up a finely crafted rug—but only GoodWeave’s child-labor-free label makes a rug truly one in a million. There is no substitute for the quality and craftsmanship a skilled adult weaver uses to create the million or more knots in a hand crafted 8' x 10' rug. GoodWeave certified rugs are available in a wide range of prices, sizes, styles and designs, from more than 125 leading rug companies and designers, and in over 1,000 online and retail outlets and showrooms around the world.

Spotlight On Importers/Designers

Mark Readel

“Unlike many of my colleagues in the industry, I don’t come from a rug family tradition,” says Mark Readel, founder of RUGGUY GALLERIEZ. “We didn’t sell them, own them, or know anything about them. I fell into the rug business and fell in love with rugs.” From his first job cleaning carpets at age 17 to his role today as designer and manufacturer of high-end Tibetan rugs, Mark has been fascinated with the workmanship and the workers involved in the creation of handmade carpets. And from his first visit to a Kathmandu rug factory supported by GoodWeave®, Mark explains, “It just made sense to be part of this organization.”
