)Nearly 300,000 children are exploited as child labor in the carpet industry.
This has to end, and it will. RugMark is the international organization
devoted to building the schools, programs and opportunities that give children
back their childhood. It’s working, from Pakistan to India to Nepal, and you
can help. Look for the certified and numbered RugMark label on the back of an
imported rug. It’s your best assurance that no children were exploited in the
manufacture of the carpet you're buying. Because an imported rug that was made
using child labor is ugly no matter what it looks like.
