Nepal - Kathmandu - Carpet weaving industry
Colours are mixed to dye the wool in the factory lab. The factory make its own designs and can make carpets to order as well. They mix their own colours,dye the wool,wash it, weave it according to required designs and export them abroad.The licensee factories fall under three different categories, set by GWF;A for not very likely to hire children, B for more likely and therefor require more often inspections and C for likely to hire children and there for need constant supervision with regular visits any time of the day by GWF inspectors. Amity Carpet Factory is in category A.
The Good Weave Foundation is a charity set up in partnership with the Nepalese carpet industry. The aim is to eliminate child labor in all carpet factories in Nepal. Factories which do not employ children can sign up with the charity and become a licensee to the GWF brand and label their carpets with the GWF label which promises any buyers abroad that no children were involved in making the carpets.
