Two More Companies Join Goodweave

WASHINGTON - Two more companies have joined GoodWeave, an organization working to end child labor in the rug industry and provide educational opportunities to children in weaving communities.
     Tibetan Karma Carpets and è bella designs join more than 90 North American rug companies producing child-labor-free rugs certified by GoodWeave.
     Following a visit to Nepal with Airline Ambassadors International, friends and flight attendants Alex Burgnon and Mike Rhodes started Tibetan Karma Carpets.
     The company sources the silk and wool rugs Burgnon and Rhodes discovered on their visit to Nepal.
     "Life is about service, and for us, this is the best way to serve," Burgnon said. "Good-Weave helps us raise the ethical bar."
     Boulder, Colo.-based rug company è bella designs, founded by self-proclaimed "texture junkie" Nicole Linton, also joined Goodweave.
     The company's nature inspired alpaca and wool rugs can be found in the homes of celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Sharon Stone.
     "I want to sustain livelihoods through my business," Linton said. "GoodWeave has a parallel mission. That helps me educate my clients."
