A million knots make up a finely crafted rug—but only GoodWeave’s child-labor-free label makes a rug truly one in a million. There is no substitute for the quality and craftsmanship a skilled adult weaver uses to create the million or more knots in a hand crafted 8' x 10' rug. GoodWeave certified rugs are available in a wide range of prices, sizes, styles and designs, from more than 125 leading rug companies and designers, and in over 1,000 online and retail outlets and showrooms around the world.
