We fully support and endorse GoodWeave UK (the international non-profit organization devoted to ending child labour in the handmade carpet industry in South Asia) which is ideal for smaller importers and wholesalers. However, as a company with major purchasing power, FrithRugs feel more confident in setting out and adhering to our own stringent polices which we can police and enforce.
We want to ensure that customers can purchase FrithRugs Indian rugs with confidence and with complete peace of mind and so in order to be sure of the provenance of FrithRugs we insist on our own labels which meet our own exacting standards.
We have also helped establish a school in the main weaving area of Bhadohi in Utta Pradesh, North East India and continue to contribute to the running of the school. To date we have helped educate 2,000 girls.
