WASHINGTON, D.C.–Next Thursday, Jan. 12, GoodWeave will host a cocktail reception during the Atlanta International Area Rug Market. To be held from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Stoddard Room of the E Lounge in the Ellis Hotel — two blocks from AmericasMart — the event will give attendees a chance to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as well as learn more about GoodWeave’s expansion into Afghanistan.
The organization, which looks to end child labor in the handmade carpet industry, has previously said the Afghan carpet industry represents a major opportunity for private sector growth in Afghanistan. GoodWeave has been operating in South Asia’s handmade carpet industry for 15 years.
