2005 Skoll social entrepreneur Nina Smith heads up GoodWeave, formerly known as RugMark, and has been speerheading a campaign to end child labor in the handmade rug industry. The 2010 GoodWeave Rug Sourcebook is the newest element in that campaign, and was developed at the request of interior designers. The Sourcebook features images of GoodWeave certified child-labor-free rugs and includes a full listing of venues where the rugs can be purchased. The Sourcebook premiered at the GoodWeave booth donated by Architectural Digest at its Home Design Show in New York City in March, where some 25,000 interior designers and other members of the trade had the opportunity to learn about GoodWeave.
