Good Weave Certified Jute Rugs


The Design, craftsmanship and the sustainability of materials used are all values to consider when buying a rug for your store. And when you consider how a product is made there is a lot more than meets the eye, including the hidden costs at the expense of the environment and to the people who make the products.

Casa Amarosa partnered with GoodWeave last month, joining 350 other companies around the world. For Casa Amarosa, becoming a GoodWeave partner meant giving our retail partners the assurance that we work closely with our artisan manufacturers to ensure fair labor practices that not only provide jobs, but also promote people’s health and well-being.  

Good Weave Label: What does it mean?

The GoodWeave label means that no child, forced or bonded labor was used in the making of a certified product, and that your purchase supports programs that educate children and ensure decent work for adults.

The Social Impact 

Since its establishment 25 years ago, GoodWeave has rescued 7,900 children from child labour, provided 37,00 children with quality education and reached 79,441 workers in the supply chain.

The CEO of GoodWeave, Nina Smith, shares the story of Sanju who was rescued from a carpet factory in Nepal.  At the age of 11, Sanju worked 16 hour days for seven days a week.  After being rescued, her family fell victim to two devastating earthquakes that destroyed her village.  Within a week's time, GoodWeave was able to put Sanju in one of Nepal's best schools while her parents and community tried to rebuild their village.  Success stories like this is what keeps GoodWeave going.  Their ultimate goal is to end child labour permanently around the world including sectors outside of the rug industry.
