Layout 1The GoodWeave Student Rug Design Competition deadline is fast approaching, all entries need to be in by  17th May 2013. This year the theme is ‘Interpreting Fashion’ and the brief has been developed by Roger Oates, the acclaimed flooring designer.

This is the sixth time this prestigious competition has run and is sponsored by WovenGround and Jacaranda Carpets; both are GoodWeave Partners and active supporters of the work that GoodWeave does internationally to eradicate the exploitation of children in the production of rugs.
