THE One Blog


We work with the Rugmark Foundation – a private, non-profit organisation that ensures that each rug bearing its label has been woven without the use of child labour. A portion of the purchase price of all Rugmark carpets goes towards the education, rehabilitation, and healthcare of children who have been taken out of the weaving industry. A further portion is donated by the manufacturer towards aiding impoverished weaving communities and paying for inspectors to spot-check factories, the safety of looms and working conditions of the weavers. Rugmark has thus far established seven schools, a mobile health clinic and a rehabilitation centre caring for more than 2,070 students and employing more than 90 teachers and inspectors. Eighty-five percent of all rugs sold by THE One bear the Rugmark label.
