Children's Stories

Gopal grew up in a poor and violent home in Nepal’s central Makawanpur district, not far from Kathmandu. In a story we hear all too frequently, his father would spend all of his wages from farming on alcohol, return home drunk, and beat Gopal’s mother and often Gopal as well.

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.
