Macy’s Supports Artisans & Shuts Down Child Labor with GoodWeave

POSTED UNDER Social Responsibility

In spring 2011, Macy’s introduced a collection of decorative area rugs that have been certified by GoodWeave™, an international organization that works to ensure rugs made by hand in Nepal and India are free of child labor. The collection is carried in Macy’s stores nationwide and on macys.com. By buying a beautiful hand-crafted rug at Macy’s with the GoodWeave label, shoppers are helping support families and build sustainable communities in Nepal and India, nations where poverty is widespread. GoodWeave-certified rugs are woven by skilled adult artisans, permitting educational opportunities for children who otherwise might be required to work. Macy’s continues to work with GoodWeave to expand the availability of certified rugs in the United States. More information about GoodWeave is available at goodweave.org
