Children's Stories

To help support their family, Nirmala and her brother were brought to Kathmandu from their home in central Nepal. Upon arrival in the city, their mother forced the siblings to become domestic servants for a butcher and his household. Ten-year-old Nirmala and her brother suffered frequent beatings and verbal abuse from the butcher's wife. In exchange, Nirmala's mother received around five dollars each month for her children's labor.

Spotlight On Importers/Designers

Dave Mink

From a boot-strapping business borne of one man’s penchant for globetrotting to a thriving family company running the rug departments for America’s largest department store chain, Kenneth Mink's business has come a long way since its founding in 1972. In 2009 Mink's operation not only acquired leases to all 200 Macy's rug departments and macys.com, but also joined GoodWeave®, pledging to source rugs certified child-labor-free from its suppliers in India.
