The Difference

It’s simple. When you purchase any rug with Rubicon Rugs, 10% of the sale price will be donated to the international leader in providing a solution towards ending illegal child labor: GoodWeave. Once your purchase is finalized, you’ll receive an email acknowledgment from the organization thanking you for your contribution. Your rug will not only add beauty to your home, but every time you see it, you’ll be pleased knowing you’ve contributed towards making the world a better place.
