Textiles are the clothes that dress your home. Do you know where yours come from?
When I became a retail partner with Jaipur Rugs almost a decade ago, I was taken with the beauty and quality of their rugs and textile accents. As the issue of corporate responsibility in my partnerships became increasingly important to me, I happily discovered that Jaipur Rugs had been leading the way all along!
The Jaipur Rugs Foundation was created in 2004 with the mandate to reach out to remote rural areas in India and establish bonds with under-served communities, especially women, training them to weave rugs and providing the necessary support to create sustainable livelihoods. Jaipur Rugs group is known globally not just for exquisite rugs and other home furnishing products but also for their unique and inclusive business-development model that links these same grassroots artisans with world markets. You can learn more about their exciting projects, initiatives, and awards here: http://www.jaipurrugs.org/
