Children's Stories

Prakash’s life had a modest but happy beginning. Prakash lived with his parents and three siblings in a remote village in Nepal’s Chitwan district. Prakash’s father was in poor health and could not do manual labor; Prakash’s mother earned money from the small patch of infertile land the family owned and part-time work on other farms. Prakash was enrolled in school and advanced to the third grade. Although they were living in poverty, the family was content.

Joseph Carini Carpets

For Joseph of Joseph Carini Carpets, a rug’s essence must appeal to both the eyes and the heart. Much more than a simple floor covering, each carpet represents the energy of all the individuals involved in its making, and a rug made with child labor carries a negative energy that can be seen in the carpet and felt in the room. Joseph Carini Carpets' participation in the GoodWeave® certification program ensures that the rugs convey beauty, inside and out.
