Child-Labor-Free Rugmark Certified Carpets
Just as more people are looking for the Fair Trade icon on their coffee packaging, here’s another certification to look out for (and be grateful for). The Rugmark Foundation has developed a stringent certification system that works with weavers and rug companies worldwide to set new standards for child-free, socially-conscious rugmaking.
In order to qualify for the RugMark certification, manufacturers must sign a legally binding contract to:
- produce carpets without illegal child labor,
- register all looms with the RugMark Foundation,
- allow access to looms for unannounced inspections, and
- pay associated license fees.
The best part? You can buy some of the best rug companies’ designs online (including Angela Adams and Emma Gardner) through their directory, or search for retailers near you who cary RugMark certified rugs. So the next time you’re looking for that perfect rug to complement your bamboo flooring, look for the RugMark certified tag on the back!
