We are pleased to announce that the new hand tufted Villa Nova X Kyra Cane rugs carry the GoodWeave label.
The Romo Group, is now a proud partner of GoodWeave, a non-profit organisation dedicated to ensuring
no child or forced labour is used in the making of a certified product, such as our tufted rugs
which are handcrafted in India. The Goodweave label is the best assurance that Villa Nova’s new hand
tufted rugs are free of child, forced or bonded labour. To help combat child labour and modern
slavery, a percentage of the cost of labelled rugs goes to support educational and social programmes
in India and Nepal.
How does GoodWeave work?
Each GoodWeave approved rug is labelled with a unique code that can be traced back to the licensed
producer. Our licensed weavers sign a legally binding contract to produce rugs without child, forced
or bonded labour and allowing unannounced inspections of their workrooms.
GoodWeave fulfils its mission by bringing visibility to global supply chains; protecting informal
and marginalized workers; providing assurance that certified products are free of child, forced and
bonded labour and restoring childhood to vulnerable children. The GoodWeave organisation also offers
educational opportunities to children in carpet weaving communities.
