Gallery la Musa

It was a fortuitous journey that led AnnMaria Baldine—founder of Washington, DC’s Gallery la Musa—from studies for a career in illustration and advertising to rug design. Her concern for the well-being of weavers and their children, however, is no accident. She has been committed to service since childhood. “It is very important to me,” she says, “that children are protected. GoodWeave® is a wonderful way to make sure they aren’t exploited.”

From its London and New York locations, M & M offers traditional Oriental rugs, custom-made designer rug collections and custom-produced area rugs. In addition to custom designs, the company's membership in the GoodWeave® certification program helps to set it apart.

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.

SHIVHON

The way Hawaii- and L.A.-based interior designer Shirley Shivhon tells the story, she “just fell into the rug business” on a visit to Nepal. By a stroke of serendipity she met the patriarch of a family weaving business, visited the weavers at work, and was awestruck. “It’s crazy to watch what they do and see their talent,” Shirley says. From the start she knew that she herself would work only with a factory like the one she found, a factory that had good labor practices. But joining GoodWeave® does more than help her company, Shirley says; GoodWeave helps make a big difference across the entire industry.

Satia Art + Floor

As a child growing up in Germany and spending after-school hours helping out in his father's rug business, Bijan Koukpari had a natural interest in design. That early involvement combined with an interest in architecture and development led to the founding of Satia Art + Floor in Vancouver. Founding a company that makes one-of-a-kind hand-knotted carpets from Nepal was a natural fit. Natural, too, was his decision to collaborate with GoodWeave®.
