At Happy as Larry we’re dream weavers, child delighters and imagination merchants. Our goal is simple – to make products that are beautiful, magical and made to last. Some children think that our rugs are made by Elves, who stitch together rainbows, but the truth is just as magical. They are handmade in Nepal and India, whose ancestors have been making rugs since prehistoric times. All of our goods are safe and have been playfully tested on children.
We are partnering with and currently going through stringent checks by GoodWeave International ensuring our rugs are made by adult artisans, not children, GoodWeave is ending child labour and offering educational opportunities to children in the carpet weaving communities.
