Why Buy a RugMark Certified Rug?

By purchasing a carpet or rug with the RugMark label you are joining a growing group of socially responsible consumers who are sending the powerful signal that they will not support products made under inhumane working conditions.

The cost for the added assurance that your rug was not made with child labor is minimal. Plus a portion of the price of your rug will help fund rehabilitation and education programs for children who have been rescued from illegal work situations.

For example, a rug that is certified as child-labor-free retails at about half a percent more than a non-certified rug. On a $2,000 rug, that amounts to only $10, a small cost for a beautiful rug that you’ll feel good about owning because you are making a difference in a child’s life and helping to end child labor.
