GoodWeave and our Partnership
We are so pleased to announce that we are now an official licensee of Good Weave International.. OHH! YEAH!
GOOD WEAVE VISION:
GoodWeave envisions a day when no child is made to work instead of going to school, and when freedom, access to education, and the right to childhood are guaranteed.
So what this means for you when you buy a rug from us.
In the production of your rug or cushion:
No child labour
No bonded labour
No forced labour
Oh Happy Home! is a proud partner of GoodWeave, ensuring our rugs are made by adult artisans, not children.
GoodWeave is ending child labor and offering educational opportunities to children in carpet weaving communities around the world.
GoodWeave fulfills its mission by creating market demand for certified child-labor-free rugs, monitoring supply chains, rescuing and educating child laborers, and providing critical services for weaving families.
Oh Happy Home! is proud to be licensed by GoodWeave, an organization that is ending child labor in the carpet industry and replicating its market-based approach in other sectors.
The GoodWeave label is the best assurance that the rug was produced free of child labor, and it also means that a percentage of the cost of the rug supports GoodWeave social programs in India, Nepal or Afghanistan.
Certified rugs are produced by licensed exporters, who have agreed to produce rugs without child labor, and allow unannounced inspections by GoodWeave.
What does the GoodWeave label mean?
The GoodWeave label is the best assurance that no child labor, forced labor or bonded labor was used in the making of the certified product. When you choose the GoodWeave label, your purchasing decision also supports programs that educate children, provide critical services, and transform communities.
