Lapchi and Oregon Home Magazine are proud to host an evening with GoodWeave at Atelier Lapchi in Portland, with a special presentation and reception with GoodWeave Executive Director, Nina Smith. Also speaking at the open-to-the-public-event will be Lapchi Artistic Director, Andrew Neave.

Nina Smith will speak on theGoodWeave┬« certification prcoess for the handmade rug industry and the GoodWeave “One in Million” campaign that educates the marketplace on the mission and the successes of the international non-profit organization.

GoodWeave works to end child labor in the carpet industry and to offer educational opportunities to children in weaving communities. The organization, which operates in rug-producing and importing countries in Europe, North America and Asia, accomplishes this work through: Inspections & Monitoring, Rescue & Education, and a Consumer Awareness Campaign. When GoodWeave was founded, there were one million children working in the South Asian rug industry. Today child labor is down 75 percent, in large part due to GoodWeave. With your help, we can end it once and for all.
