craftsmen and women. We are passionate about upholding these exceptional skills whilst ensuring that everyone involved is well treated. We insist the factories we work with are GoodWeave registered, thus ensuring that no child, forced or bonded labour is used in the weaving of our handmade carpets & rugs.
