Gary Cruz Studio

Growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast in a tiny fishing village that doubled as an art colony, Gary Cruz fell in love with the patterns and colors in nature. That love, along with a keen knowledge of proportion and scale honed by formal training as an architect, is reflected in the custom, hand-knotted rugs of Gary Cruz Studio.  In describing his affiliation with GoodWeave®, Gary speaks in architectural terms.  As an avid supporter of the organization, he says GoodWeave membership is an “essential building block” of his company.

Somace Design

Based in Honolulu, Somace Design creates rugs with a sense of Hawaiian family spirit—'ohana—and a modern Pacific feel. A family venture between designer Kaypee Soh and managing director Edward Macey, Somace Design has grown from a small local rug boutique to a nationally recognized business whose lush, colorful rugs are in demand from coast to coast. By partnering with GoodWeave®, So'mace further embraces the spirit of 'ohana by ensuring that its rugs are free of child labor and woven only by skilled adult artisans.

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®.

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.

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®.

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.”

byHenzel

Asa and Calle Henzel—founders of the custom rug company byHenzel based in Gothenberg, Sweden—have always supported children’s rights and been active in Swedish children’s charities, so joining GoodWeave® was a natural decision. For both Asa and Calle, it is simply unimaginable that someone could purchase a rug made with child labor. “Absolutely everyone who works with rug manufacturers should have a certification,” Asa says firmly.

BravinLee Programs

BravinLee Programs is a contemporary art gallery located in the West Chelsea neighborhood of New York City and was founded in 1991.  It is run by John Post Lee and Karin Bravin.  Helping visual artists design hand-knotted, limited edition rugs made in Nepal seemed like a perfect addition to their wide-ranging slate of projects.  Joining GoodWeave®, an organization that mirrors their political ideology, followed almost immediately.
