Why Design Now?: GoodWeave Label and Odegard Rugs


Why? GoodWeave is an ethical certification program that seeks to end illegal child labor in the rug industry. Stephanie Odegards company was the first in America to work with GoodWeave. Sales of her carpets carrying the label support educational opportunities for children in South Asia. The Navaratna rug depicts the Navaratna, or nine gemstones, whose traditional arrangement symbolizes celestial forces in Indian culture.
