Doug & Gene Meyer Studio

They've been called master colorists, visionary, prolific and quirky. After over 20 years atop the fashion and design world, it seems that rugs were an inevitable medium for the talents of superhero designers Doug and Gene Meyer. Now their feats of wonder go beyond the color wheel—by partnering with GoodWeave, the dynamic Meyers duo is saving lives.

Asha Carpets

"It is as basic as this," explains Miron Chlebosz, one half of New York-based Asha Carpets, speaking of the use of child labor in the rug industry. "We are socially conscious people, and our clientele simply wouldn't accept it. When our customers find out we are part of a program like GoodWeave®, we hear a palpable sigh of relief."

Carini Lang

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.

Tibetan Karma Carpets

Alex Burgnon is not Tibetan, not Nepalese, not from a family of rug merchants and—until co-founding Tibetan Karma Carpets with buddy Mike Rhodes—not a rug designer.  He was, and still is, a flight attendant with a huge heart. Tibetan Karma Carpets was born out of compassion, and their decision to join GoodWeave® was a “way to be part of a compassionate community.”

Paramount Rugs

The Bhattarai family knew that the rug business was a chance to create jobs and serve their community. In the words of Roshan Bhattarai of award-winning Paramount Rugs, “My father was an orphaned child and we learned from him always to ask ourselves, ‘What can we do for others?’ ” And so, working with a manager who was already involved with GoodWeave®, the Bhattarais set out to make beautiful rugs and help educate the weavers’ children.

Caccese Collection LLC

The rug industry seems a long way from the frantic world of finance in which Tyla Caccese was trained. However, Tyla, founder of Caccese Collection, has always had a passion for design, for the environment and for social causes. Collaborating with GoodWeave® supports her core values. “I don’t want to sell a product if I can’t stand behind it 100 percent,” she says. “Being a member of GoodWeave helps me do that.”

è bella

A self-confessed “texture junkie,” it was easy for owner Nicole Linton  to see how importing rugs could help the artisans she so admired. When she decided to expand her line to include rugs woven in India and Nepal, it was natural to turn to GoodWeave®.
