U.K. Heritage Rugs
When Brian Sales and his wife Judith opened their first shop in County Durham in 2006, they were surprised at the very low prices of some rug suppliers. Only later did they come to appreciate the significance of the GoodWeave name found on rugs of equal or better quality.
As exclusive handknotted rug licensees for both the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum,UK Heritage Rugs have unique access to both organisations priceless collections of art from around the world.
Their founder, Brian Sales, has designed carpets and rugs for over 40 years and has always considered manufacturing practices to be a significant element in the product story.
“The V&A and the British Museum are world famous brands with strong principles regarding child labour. Our membership of GoodWeave was key to gaining licenses from both organisations. During our attendance at trade and residential shows child labour is a frequent question. The GoodWeave story is very well received and a fantastic sales aid.”
