GOODWEAVE TEAMS UP WITH NAMASTE TO HELP STOP CHILD LABOUR

Namaste, wholesaler and retailer of fairly produced products, including a wide selection of Indian made Kilims and flatweaves, has signed up with GoodWeave, the international rug certification scheme which ensures rugs are made child labour free with no forced or bonded labour involved.

Based in Skipton, North Yorkshire, Namaste has a strong ethical trading policy and is also recognised by BAFTS, THE British Association for Fair Trade Shops & Suppliers as a Fair Trade Importer.

Rachel Brummitt, of Namaste explained the importance of having its rugs certified by GoodWeave: “We work with many rug suppliers in India and have been selling fairly traded rugs for years. We have taken this additional step to provide the added reassurance of a totally independent monitoring and inspection body which has a proven and excellent track-record.

“GoodWeave is an award-winning, pioneering charity and we look forward to an exciting future with them.”


Each of Namaste certified rugs will now bear a numbered GoodWeave label on the reverse, which confirms that it has been produced by a supplier which meets the GoodWeave Standard and is randomly inspected by GoodWeave inspectors.
