Kolatech founder, Mr. Young Gul Kim, quit his job after he became deaf in 1988. Soon after, he entered in the housewares market in Korea and became the exclusive agent of a Latex Foam Product used for bedding in Korea.
Getting involved in rugs all started with a GoodWeave newsletter. A story of a young rescued boy touched the hearts of Mr. Kim and the Kolatech team. He saw ethically produced rugs as a particularly good opportunity in Korea, where that market is growing and new. “All children have the right to study and be cared for,” says Mr. Kim.
