Designer Testimonials

"The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is committed to fostering business practices and design principles that sustain our organization, our members and the planet. The GoodWeave mark is an important way to remind our members of the impact their choices have on both the end users and the producers of products."

—Michael Alin, Executive Director, ASID

"Even though many of us don't realize it, we as designers have a choice to make every time we recommend a rug to a client: will we fight child labor or will we support it? I've been a designer for nearly 15 years, and I'm still amazed at how easy, and yet so incredibly powerful, that choice is."

—Betty Wasserman, designer, Betty Wasserman Art & Interiors, Ltd.

“Great style is more than aesthetics—it's also being responsible and well-informed. GoodWeave helps us be both while still finding some of the world's most beautiful rugs.”

—Angelo Surmelis, designer, angelo:HOME

“Through sourcing GoodWeave rugs, interior designers have the opportunity to give children back their childhoods. We can make a difference while offering our clients a finely made carpet that's easier to sell because of the positive story behind it.”

—Timothy Corrigan, designer, Timothy Corrigan, Inc.

“My clients demand quality, beauty and value in a rug—and they don't want to sacrifice social responsibility. GoodWeave is simply the best way to give my clients everything they're looking for.”

—Kimberly Rider, designer, Kimberly Rider Interiors 

“I support GoodWeave because I know that our purchasing decisions as designers and consumers have an enormous impact. I believe we have a responsibility to help abolish child slavery and provide rescued children with a chance for a better life."

—Lisa Staprans, designer, Staprans Design

Children's Stories

At the age of five, Manju was already working on the rug looms. While she has since been found and freed from illegal carpet work, some 250,000 children throughout South Asia still toil in obscurity. Through GoodWeave nearly 3,600 kids like Manju have been rescued, rehabilitated and educated, and thousands more deterred from entering the work force.
